The relationship between BAC and fatal motor vehicle accidents

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.

This makes teens who use cell phones while they drive at even more of a risk of being involved in fatal motor vehicle accidents.
