Did you know there are online blood alcohol calculators that can help you determine your possible impairment levels before you take a single drink? One such calculator, supplied by the University of Oklahoma Police Department (http://www.ou.edu/oupd/bac.htm) offers a blood alcohol level calculator based on weight, hours spend drinking, and type of drink consumed. The results may surprise you! The calculator is just a rough guide to your blood alcohol level, and doesn't take into account meals, fatigue and other conditions. The calculator can be an excellent guide as to what to expect when drinking over time, and is especially helpful for those not used to alcohol and its effects.
