The Intoximeters Inc. “Drink Wheel” is a form that you can fill out. Upon completion we will instantly compute your estimated blood/breath alcohol concentration (“BAC”) based on the information that you have provided and return that estimate to you. It is presented as a public service to Intoximeters web site visitors. Its primary purpose is to provide useful information about the responsible use of alcohol.
Why is it called a “Drink Wheel”?
We call it the “Drink Wheel” because it is based on various paper and cardboard BAC calculators that are given out in alcohol awareness programs, some of which are in the form of a wheel that you can spin around to calculate your estimated BAC based on what and how much you have had to drink.
0.00 g/l of blood – This is the only safe BAC level.
0.20 g/l of blood – The BAC limit for drivers in some countries.
0.50 g/l of blood – The BAC limit for many countries (approximate).
0.80 g/l of blood – The BAC limit for most countries (approximate).
1.00 g/l of blood – The BAC limit for drivers in almost every country is no higher than this.
3.00 g/l of blood – At this level most people will lose conciousness.
4.00 g/l of blood – At this level most people will become comatose and may die.
