What is the Legal Limit in Indiana
Unfortunately, alcohol affects people in many different ways. Alcohol has varied effects on individuals based on several qualities, including:
Alcohol’s varied effect on people is why Indiana measures a person’s blood-alcohol concentration, or BAC, to determine the level of intoxication. In Indiana, you are not permitted to drive if you have a BAC of 0.08%.
Buzzed Driving is Still Bad
Even though the legal limit is set at 0.08%, drivers need to realize that your ability to drive is significantly impacted, even if you’re under the limit. An individual would be considered to be “buzzed” at 0.04% BAC. Even though an individual can still legally drive, it is not safe. By the time an individual has a BAC of 0.06%, they are twice as likely to get into a deadly crash as a driver who has not consumed any alcohol. This is why there are separate legal limits for drivers of commercial vehicles and drivers under the legal drinking age. CDL holders BAC limit is set at 0.04%, and underage drivers cannot have a BAC above 0.02%. There should be ZERO alcohol in the system for any individual under the age of 21 years old.
