  • BAC Effects on Driving Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) 1 Typical EffectsPredictable Effects on Driving.02% Some loss of judgment Relaxation Slight body warmth Altered mood Decline in visual functions (rapid tracking of a moving target) Decline in ability to perform two tasks at the same time (divided attention).05% Exaggerated behavior May have loss of small-muscle control (e.g., focusing your eyes) Impaired judgment Usually good feeling Lowered alertness Release of inhibition Reduced coordination Reduced ability to track moving objects Difficulty steering Reduced response to emergency driving situations.08% Muscle coordination becomes poor (e.g., balance, speech, vision, reaction time, and hearing) Harder to detect danger Judgment, self-control, reasoning, and memory are impaired Concentration Short-term memory loss Speed control Reduced information processing capability (e.g., signal detection, visual search) Impaired perception.10% Clear deterioration of reaction time and control Slurred speech, poor coordination, and slowed thinking Reduced ability to maintain lane position and brake appropriately.15% Far less muscle control than normal Vomiting may occur (unless this level is reached slowly or a person has developed a tolerance for alcohol) Major loss of balance Substantial impairment in vehicle control, attention to driving task, and in necessary visual and auditory information processing

  • Driving While Impaired In 2009, over 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. That's less than one percent of the 147 million self-reported episodes of alcohol-impaired driving among U.S. adults each year. Drugs other than alcohol (e.g., marijuana and cocaine) are involved in about 18% of motor vehicle driver deaths. These other drugs are often used in combination with alcohol.
  • Slide 10
  • Drugged-Driving Laws There are three types of drugged-driving laws: 1) Statutes that require drugs to render a driver incapable of driving safely 2) Statutes requiring that the drug impair the drivers ability to operate safely or under the influence of an intoxicating drug 3) Per se statutes make it a criminal offense to have a drug or metabolite in ones body/body fluids while operating a motor vehicle zero tolerance
  • Slide 11
  • Driving while Impaired Drug per se laws are not quite analogous to the alcohol impaired- driving per se laws now in effect in every State make it illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of.08 or greater. Alcohol-impaired driving per se laws are based on evidence that all drivers are impaired at.08 BAC. Drug per se laws are more analogous to zero-tolerance laws that make it illegal to drive with certain drugs in the system. Currently, there are 15 States where it is illegal per se to operate a motor vehicle with certain drugs in ones system. Three of those States (Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia) have determined that driving with specific cutoff levels of certain prohibited drugs or substances other than alcohol is a per se violation of its DUI statute.
  • Slide 12
  • Driving While Impaired Of the 15 States, 12 States (Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, and Wisconsin) do not tolerate any presence of a prohibited drug or substance in a drivers body while the person is driving. The specific drugs prohibited in these States vary. In these States, any amount of prohibited drug found in the blood or urine of a driver while operating a motor vehicle is a per se violation of those States DUI statutes. These States were the major focus of this study. Additionally, in 5 States (California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, and West Virginia), it is illegal for any drug addict or habitual user of drugs to drive a vehicle in that State. Two States (North Carolina and South Dakota) make it illegal for any person younger than 21 to drive with any amount of a prohibited drug or substance in their bodies
