Abstract
Although moderate drinking does not necessarily increase a person's blood a lcohol concentration (BAC) to the level at which driving is legally prohibi ted in the United States, any drinking can impair driving tasks. In additio n to laws establishing lower legal BAC limits for drivers, legislative appr oaches for reducing alcohol-impaired driving include imposing sanctions for drinking and driving and restricting alcohol's availability.
