OKLAHOMA BAC CHART
Understanding How BAC Affects DUI Charges
Under Oklahoma law, you can be arrested on suspicion of DUI with a blood alcohol content (BAC) reading of .08% or more. A minor can be charged with DUI if he or she has any trace of alcohol in his or her blood.
It is crucial that you act immediately if you have been arrested on suspicion of DUI. You have 15 days to request a hearing with the Department of Public Safety (DPS) to prevent revocation of your license or obtain a permit to drive to and from work. You are more likely to achieve a successful outcome if you work with experienced attorneys who understand the system.
How Many Drinks Bring BAC over the Legal Limit?
It can be difficult to know whether you have a blood alcohol content equal to or higher than the legal limit. Generally speaking, the less you weigh, the less you can drink before becoming too drunk to legally drive.
Although weight is an important factor in determining how many drinks you can have before you approach .08% BAC, it is important to note that other factors may impact your ability to operate a vehicle when you have been drinking.
Other potential factors include:
- Whether you are taking prescription medication
- Your gender
- Your body fat percentage
- Whether you ate
Men and women often have different thresholds for when alcohol impairment begins. For example, a 120-pound woman’s BAC will likely be around .04% after one drink, whereas a 120-pound man’s BAC will likely be around .03% after one drink.
