ARE THEY SAFE TO DRIVE?
I always say, “Driver’s Licenses were invented so parents would learn to pray!” But seriously – what parent doesn’t worry about their kid’s driving – or the friends who drive them around?
Teach your kid to be aware of the FACTS about Blood Alcohol Levels (BAC) and what it means for their safety. This way they can know when to say, “NO” to driving, or accepting a ride from someone under the influence.
With the blood alcohol calculator below, you can estimate of how alcohol consumed will affect a person’s driving. You’re able to input weight, gender, hours since consumption and how many ounces someone’s had. There are also statistics about what is considered a standard drink, and the physical and mental effects of drinking alcohol. Teach YOUR teen how to use it!
