BAC Calculator

Standard Drink Sizes

Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is a percentage measurement of the amount of alcohol in a person's blood stream. BAC is the standard measurement for determining intoxication levels in DUI, DWI, and public drunkenness. Please note that these calculators are not 100% accurate and only provide a rough estimate of your BAC based on the information you provide. BAC calculators cannot account for all of the factors involved in your body's processing of alcohol, only general factors such as age, weight, gender, duration of consumption, and amount of alcohol consumed.
