What does High Bac (blood Alcohol Concentration) mean?

Blood alcohol concentration or BAC is the amount of alcohol in a driver's blood. It is illegal in every state for drivers to operate a motorized vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. DUI penalties can be severe for drivers who drive with a BAC at this level or at a higher level. BAC can be impacted by a driver's age, metabolism, the rate their body absorbs the alcohol and the driver' weight. State laws may vary, but in general, a driver is considered to have a "high BAC" if their blood alcohol concentration is between 0.15% and 0.20%.
