What Blood Alcohol Concentration Entails – FRSC


It is one of the commandments of driving, ‘ don’t drink and drive’ and if you really want to drink, then don’t drive.

Alcohol in a human system can easily affect that person’s sense of judgment while driving and even cause accident that could be fatal.

Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) explains what blood alcohol concentration is and how it is measured.

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is a measure of the amount of alcohol in a person’s bloodstream. BAC is commonly expressed in percentage terms.

For instance, having a BAC of 0.08 percent means that a person has eight parts alcohol per 10,000 parts blood in the body.

This is level of BAC in which a person is not allowed to drive any sort of motor vehicle by law.

The FRSC generally specify BAC levels in terms of grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood (often abbreviated as grams per deciliter, or g/dL).

BAC levels can be detected by breath, blood, or urine tests.
