Blood Alcohol Concentration in Georgia

Legal Blood Alcohol Level in Georgia

Under Georgia law, a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent constitutes drunk driving. If you are under twenty-one, the legal blood alcohol level is 0.02 percent and you can receive an enhanced penalty if you reach the aggravated BAC limit which is 0.15 percent.

What is BAC?

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the amount of alcohol present in the blood. The number of drinks a person consumes is a poor measure of blood alcohol concentration due to variations in body weight, body fat, and other factors amongst individuals and between the sexes.

For law enforcement purposes, a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent is considered drunk driving and is something that can be measured and established in a court of law through blood, breath, or urine tests. The amount of alcohol it takes to reach this level varies with each individual.

The Common Errors Related to BAC in Georgia

Increase in blood alcohol concentration can result in worsening impairment of the ability to drive.

Impairment may include the loss of:

  • Concentration
  • Depth perception
  • Peripheral vision
  • Reasoning
  • Reaction time
  • Reflexes
  • Gross motor control

Impairment may also result in staggering, slurred speech, and severe loss of motor skills.

Either blood alcohol concentration or impairment from alcohol or drugs must be proven in a court of law to convict a person of a DUI. Therefore, the administration of the BAC tests must be valid and accurate and administered according to law.
