We have a free online tool that helps people determine whether they're safe to drive after drinking alcohol.
This tool will help you figure out how much alcohol is safe to drink before getting behind the wheel. It's based on the legal limit set by Colorado.
In Colorado, the legal limit for drivers is 0.05 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC). If you're under 21 years old, the legal limit is 0.02 percent BAC.
It's never safe to drink and drive. However, there are some things you can do to make sure you stay safe while driving after drinking. First, don't drive until you feel sober. Second, don't drink and drive. Third, avoid driving when you've been drinking. Fourth, call a cab instead of driving home. Fifth, plan ahead before going out with friends. Sixth, tell a friend where you'll be and when you expect to return. Seventh, use designated drivers. Eighth, don't drink and ride. Ninth, don't drink and walk. Tenth, don't drink and text.
There are different ways to measure how much alcohol is in a drink. One method is to calculate the number of grams of pure alcohol per unit (e.g., 1 oz = 30 g). Another method is to convert the volume of a drink into millilitres by multiplying the volume of the drink by 0.6. A third method is to convert the number of standard drinks consumed into grams of pure alcohol by dividing the total number of standard drinks by 5.
If you consume more than two standard drinks in one hour, you may start feeling the effects of alcohol within 15 minutes. However, it takes between 20 and 40 minutes for alcohol to reach peak levels in the bloodstream. This means that you might not feel any effects until after an hour has passed.
