Impaired Driving: Driving Under the Influence (DUI) – Facts
- From the first drink, alcohol affects coordination and judgment.
- Even with a Blood Alcohol Concentration well below .08 (legal limit), a person’s reaction time slows.
- The risk of being in a crash begins to climb with a BAC between .04 and .05 and increases rapidly thereafter.
Drivers who get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or taking other drugs risk both their lives and their freedom.
