BAC Limit By State

BAC Limit By State


Driving under the influence is a paramount concern in the United States, contributing significantly to traffic accidents and fatalities. Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC, serves as a crucial metric in combating this issue, with legal limits set state by state to deter such behavior. BAC represents the percentage of alcohol in a person’s bloodstream, and a BAC of 0.08% or higher is generally considered 'legally intoxicated' for drivers over 21. This regulation is far-reaching and absolute, applying to every state in the Union. 

  • Each of the 50 states' legal BAC limit for DUI is uniformly set at 0.08%. This constant figure emanates from the federal legal BAC limit enacted for the safety of motorists across the country.
