DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY DRINKS IT TAKES TO PUT YOU OVER THE LEGAL LIMIT?

In Florida the legal limit for alcohol measurement is .08% BAC (breath alcohol content). At that measurement you are legally drunk and will be arrested and taken to jail if you are caught driving a car.
If you weigh between 90 – 109 pounds and have 12 ounces of beer, four ounces of wine or one and a quarter ounces of 80 proof liquor (a shot glass is one and a half ounces), your BAC will been between .05 and .08%. At this measurement you are considered definitely impaired and your chance of an accident is increased up to 300 percent or more. If you have another drink your BAC goes up to .08% or over, and if you have any more alcohol, another beer, another shot or more wine, you are considered legally drunk. Your function and judgment are seriously affected. Consider the fact that when you have consumed two 12 ounce beers, or two shots, or two small glasses of wine you are considered legally drunk and cannot drive without taking the chance of getting arrested for DUI.
If you weigh between 110 – 129 pounds and have 12 ounces of beer, four ounces of wine or one and a quarter ounces of 80 proof liquor your BAC will be the same as noted above, and you are legally drunk.
If you weigh between 130 – 230 pounds and have the same amount of alcohol as mentioned above, your BAC will only be .01% to .05% and you are not considered legally drunk, but some loss of judgment and coordination occurs, and your thinking will be dulled.
If you weigh between 90 – 129 pounds and have that second drink in an equal amount as the first, your blood alcohol will go up to .08% and you are now legally drunk.
If you weigh between 130 – 189 pounds and have three or more drinks of alcohol equal to 12 ounces of beer, four ounces of wine or one and a quarter ounces of 80 proof liquor, your BAC will be .08% or higher and you are now legally drunk.
If you weigh between 190 – 230 and up and consume three or more drinks of alcohol equal to 12 ounces of beer, four ounces of wine or one and a quarter ounces of 80 proof liquor your BAC will be above .08% and you are legally drunk.
A person’s blood alcohol concentration will vary according to body build, sex and your current health status. Other factors that will temporarily lower a person’s tolerance level to alcohol are fatigue and stress.
