Bear, do you think BAC is a good measure of the level of impairment?


We are speaking of 2 different things there. There is:
1) Driving with more than 80mgs of alcohol in 100ml of blood. This is the total amount a person has consumed.
2) Impaired driving - if the symptoms and signs are there after 1 drink, theoretically one could be charged with impaired driving. This is how a body has reacted/ been influenced by alcohol (speech, eye colour, face, reaction time, stability etc..)

I used this before to explain something to some one...

this is to show how dumb it is to say that such a high number of young drivers get into accidents, Vs people over the age of 22...

if there is a city with 100 drivers in it..

90 are 21 and under, and 10 are 22 and over, Then it stands to reason that 80% of accidents in that city will involve a young driver no?

Thats why the same for males insurance being higher that young females. Because there are more young male drivers on the road than young female drivers, Just like there are more honda civics on the road that other models of cars, and bla bla bla bla

The sats show convenient numbers, done on test subjects that are taken in convenient demographics...

Im just wondering when there is gunna be a kid wearing a hat in an accident and then that will become a new law too... As some one said on here once before.

We have shown stats can be construed to whom ever wants the "point" they want to make.
