.08 is the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for driving in many countries, including the United States. This means that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08 or higher.
It is difficult to determine exactly how many drinks it takes to reach a BAC of .08, as various factors can affect the rate at which alcohol is metabolized by the body, including a person’s weight, gender, age, and the type of alcohol being consumed. However, as a general rule, it is estimated that a person who weighs around 160 pounds (72 kilograms) and consumes one drink per hour will reach a BAC of .08 after four drinks.
It is important to note that even small amounts of alcohol can impair a person’s judgment and reaction times, and it is never safe to drink and drive. If you are planning to consume alcohol, it is important to designate a sober driver or make other arrangements for transportation.
