I'm wondering how many Drive while Drunk.
Massachusetts has a blood alcohol level that is .08% or higher for drivers over the age of 21. For those under 21, the limit is .02%.
Most States use the .08%
The BAC limit for drivers age 21 and older in most States is 0.08 percent, although some of the states, including Colorado, Mississippi, New York, and West Virginia, to name a few, allow a BAC limit of .10 percent.
Blood Alcohol Content
The definition of blood alcohol content is the concentration of alcohol in one’s bloodstream, expressed as a percentage. Blood alcohol content, or BAC, is used to determine whether a person is legally intoxicated, especially under a driving while intoxicated law. In the field of traffic safety, BAC is expressed as the percentage of alcohol in deciliters of blood--for example, 0.10 percent. A 160-pound man, for instance, will have a BAC of approximately 0.04 percent 1 hour after consuming two 12-ounce beers or two other standard drinks on an empty stomach. All State Laws have specific driver BAC limits, which vary by State. According to these laws, operating a vehicle while having a BAC over the given limit is illegal.
