One key aspect of DUI cases is blood alcohol concentration. Also referred to as blood alcohol content, BAC measures the percentage of alcohol in the bloodstream. For example, if a driver is found to have a BAC of 0.10%, one-tenth of their blood volume is alcohol. In Arizona, the legal limit is 0.08%. High levels of alcohol in the body has been proven to greatly impair cognitive functions and decision-making abilities, reaction time, and hand-eye coordination can all be weakened due to alcohol consumption. The two most common means of measuring BAC are blood and breath tests. Although these are both scientific tests administered by professionals, errors can occur. You should not be punished if there was a problem with the machinery or a human mistake.
