How to Calculate Your Estimated Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)

During a DUI investigation the police use breath, blood and urine tests to try and determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). Under Florida law a BAC over .08% creates a legal “presumption” that your normal faculties are ‘impaired’ and you can be convicted of DUI. Below is a general guide for estimating your BAC.

  1. Count your drinks (1 drink equals 1 ounce of 100-proof liquor or one five ounce glass of table wine or one 12-ounce bottle/mug of regular beer);

  1. Use the attached chart (Printable in PDF format) and under number of Drinks and opposite Body weight find the percent of blood alcohol listed;
  2. Subtract from this number the percent of alcohol burned up during the time elapsed since your first drink. This figure is .015% per hour.

Example: 180 lbs. man - 8 drinks in 4 hours / .167% minus (.015x4) = .107%)
