Effects by BAC

How many times have we had a pint or two and decided to have a good time only to get into the car late at night thinking that nobody will be on the road and you can manage to get home safely? This decision has been taken by many more people than you think. The problem is even a little bit of alcohol can impair your judgement. Nobody ever said that alcohol helped you make better decisions. The fact of the matter is that the more alcohol we have in our bodies, the more impaired we get. Here are a few stages of behavioral changes hat impaired drivers undergo.

  • If your BAC is between 0.001 – 0.029: The person will still seem normal and although there will be no clear behavioral changes, special tests can detect subtle effects.

  • BAC level of 0.060 – 0.099: At this stage and with this BAC level, the person is less sensitive to any pain they may experience, they feel euphoric and have low inhibitions, they exhibit extroversion and have blunted feelings.

The above stages show us how increased alcohol intoxication can affect and impair our judgement. We may think that we are invincible and when we are drunk or under the influence, it certainly does feel that way, but our bodies are extremely fragile and being in control of a motor vehicle at these stages in not only putting yourself in danger but also the lives of others around you. This is why many countries ensure that the legal limit is at a certain level to ensure the safety of the concerned person as well as others. Making sure that you stay within the permissible limits is extremely important.

DUI or Driving under the Influence is a growing concern especially in many cities as the age of driving is from 16 onwards. Many people, in particular youngsters enjoy new found freedom of being independent. With high school underway or nearly over and other young adults who are off to college, the teenagers feel the freedom of being able to be in control of a powerful car and being mobile and able to drive. No matter which car they may have, it still holds enough power to get you to places and the power to kill if used improperly.

That being said, the temptation of being young, with friends and no responsibilities to tie them down makes youngsters potential DUI offenders. And it doesn’t matter which way you look at it, a DUI is a very serious crime because of the consequences it could possibly have. If you’re lucky enough, you can get home safe after a crazy night out where you’ve been drinking. If fate deals you a bad card and something really bad happens, your life could be changed forever.

DUI is also known as DWI (driving while intoxicated), OWI (operating while impaired) and OVI (Operating a vehicle under the influence. You may think that this applies only to driving under the influence of alcohol, but there’s where you would be mistaken. With so many states in America moving to legalize marijuana, this term has includes driving under the influence of any substance – whether that be alcohol or various drugs.

There has been a split of authority across the country in regards to the law. Some states make it illegal to drive a motor vehicle while under the influence or driving while intoxicated and other states indicate that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle. Where the split occurs is when the law fails to come to a conclusion of what that may entail. To put it simply, some states permit enforcement of DUI, DWI, OVI/OWI when the person concerned is either operating or is in control of a vehicle while others state that the person under influence is actually driving the vehicle.

There have been many court cases that have argued these points and when it comes to it, the differences between the two are really just technicalities. If you’re behind the car, you’re dunk and you’re driving, you’ll be prosecuted. In terms of travelling, while DUI is not such a major crime in the US, especially if you have not caused damage or harm to anybody, it makes you inadmissible to Canada. Many travelers have been surprised at the border because you don’t serve jail time if you’re let off with a ticket or a fine. If the DUI is on your record, according to the laws of the country you are visiting, it could make your entry inadmissible.

The statistics themselves are quite scary when it comes to DUI in America. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffics Safety Administration) estimates that approximately 17,941 people died in alcohol related accidents or collisions in the year 2006. This represented almost 40% of the total number of traffic deaths in America.  While the statistics vary every year, the sheer numbers show us how very real the dangers of DUI are. A further 275,000 people were involved in alcohol-related accidents and the Bureau of Justice Statistics reveals that nearly 1.5 million are arrested for DUI. In 2012, 29.1 million people admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol. 1983 proved to be a peak year in DUI statistics with 1 out of every 80 drivers in the US being arrested for DUI.
