See what your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is by using this Online Drink Wheel.
It measures what your estimated blood alcohol concentration is, based on the number of drinks you’ve had, the amount of time you drank them in, your sex and weight.
The Drink Wheel
Specifically with regard to drunk driving…
By using this Drink Wheel, you’ll see what the legal limits are in all states, so you’ll know how to interpret your BAC score.
The Intoximeters Inc. “Drink Wheel”1 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.
It would be extremely foolish for us to pretend that our “Drink Wheel” can tell you what your BAC actually is, first because it would open us up to an incredible amount of potential liability and second if it really did work accurately there would be no need for anyone to buy the instruments that we make and sell.
A person’s actual BAC is dependent on many complex factors, including their physical condition (body composition, health etc…) and what they have recently ingested (including food, water, medications and other drugs). This site includes a more detailed discussion of the Pharmacology and Disposition of alcohol in humans.
The results that are generated are rough estimates of an average healthy person’s BAC assuming typical beverage sizes, recipes and alcohol content. The BAC estimates generated by the Drink Wheel should not be used to infer anyone’s fitness to work, drive or perform any other task or duty.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
