Alpharetta Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Understanding the Dangers of Drinking & Driving

Despite efforts made nationwide to highlight the dangers of drinking and driving, DUIs remain a hazard on Georgia roadways. Many people believe there is no harm in having a few drinks and then going home with no idea of the effects that alcohol can have on the system. Even after a couple of beers, the body begins to change and react, resulting in slowed reaction time and impaired judgment.

The law makes it illegal to operate a motor vehicle with blood alcohol content (BAC) over 0.08 percent; however, it is also against the law to drive when you are impaired by alcohol, regardless of your BAC percentage.

Some of the symptoms a driver may experience at different BAC percentages:

  • 0.010 to 0.029: The average individual will feel normal with only subtle effects.
  • 0.030 to 0.059: The driver may experience euphoria and relaxation with increased talkativeness. This may also result in lessened inhibitions and problems with concentration.
  • 0.06 to 0.09: The driver's feelings may become blunted and extroverted. At this level, they may have problem reasoning, as well as struggle with depth perception, peripheral vision, and glare recovery.

As you can see, the effects of drinking do not start at 0.08 percent. For some, they may start much, much lower than that. Worse, most people do not usually recognize how many drinks it takes to reach a certain level, especially because there are so many factors that go into BAC-from weight to height to gender.
