How Many Drinks can Lead to a DUI?

Rockville, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring & Wheaton, Maryland

DUI attorneyIn Maryland, you can be charged with DUI if your BAC is .08% or higher. But how many drinks it takes to get to .08% is different for every person. The number and type of drinks your consume will, of course, impact your BAC. However, so too will factors such as your age, gender, body type, metabolism, and even how much food and water you have consumed throughout the day. This can make calculating your BAC incredibly difficult.

Police often rely on breathalyzer tests to calculate BAC. However, breathalyzer tests are known to have at least some margin of error and can be impacted by temperature, your physical condition, and a number of other factors. Particularly if your test shows you as being close to the legal BAC, dismissing results from a breathalyzer test may be possible as part of your defense.
