Many Colorado residents mistakenly believe that if their blood alcohol concentration is below the legal limit of .08 they are okay to drive. Unfortunately, that is not always true. A BAC of as little as .02 can affect the way an individual drives. Drivers who consume any amount of alcohol could cause fatal motor vehicle accidents.
A driver with a BAC of .02 could already have compromised judgment, vision and ability to perform two tasks at once. Every driver knows that driving requires the ability to multi-task, so even at this level a driver could be dangerous. At .05, a driver experiences some loss of coordination, difficulty steering and further loss of judgment, among other things.
