When you hear people talk about the risks of drunk driving, they often refer to the legal limit of .08 percent. This blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level can lead to a DUI arrest for someone who takes a breath test or a blood test.

You won't receive a warning. It will just sneak up on you. That's why you must always pay attention while driving. What are we talking about? Drunk drivers.

It doesn't take much to cause a car crash. A second or two looking at a cellphone, a moment to change the radio station or just simply to look in the rearview mirror for too long is all it takes.
