Chart allows users to estimate the effect of alcohol consumption on blood alcohol levels based on gender and weight
Las Vegas, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2013 -- The Law Offices of Garrett T. Ogata, a leading Las Vegas defense practice, has announced the availability of a free Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) calculator to its site. The calculator is meant to educate users on the effects alcohol can have on a person’s blood alcohol levels in terms of both physiological effects and legal implications. The chart factors in details such as a person’s gender and weight, as well as the amount of time that has elapsed since the first drink was consumed.
“Being informed can help many drivers avoid the mistake of getting behind the wheel when they shouldn’t,” explains Garrett Ogata. “We added the BAC calculator so that our clients could get a better understanding of how alcohol can affect them, even after just a few drinks.”
In Nevada, .08 BAC and above is a “per se” violation, but it is important for drivers to be aware that BAC is only a technical measure of how much alcohol is in a person’s system, and does not necessarily correlate with a driver’s ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. Many factors, including the use of medication, the driver’s emotional state and medical conditions can influence an individual’s response to alcohol. The charts on the site are designed to provide general guidelines to foster a better understanding of how BAC is calculated. Click on the link for more detail on a Las Vegas DUI attorney.
