Relative Driver Fatality Risk Compared to BAC
Even a BAC reading of 0.05%, which is below the legal limit for DUI/DWI conviction, may indicate a risk of up to 11 times greater than normal. The use of breathalyzers can alert drivers that may otherwise think they've had a "safe" amount. There is NO "safe" amount of drinking before driving.
