Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) refers to the amount of alcohol present in the blood at a given time. It is expressed as a ratio of grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters (deciliter) of blood and is used as a measure of intoxication. In Georgia, a driver with a BAC equal to .08 or greater will be charged with driving under the influence.
There are three main types of tests that are used to determine BAC:
- Breath test ("breathalyzer")
- Blood test
- Urine test
