Scottsdale, AZ-based Robert Dodell, Attorney at Law, is pleased to announce that his firm has launched a new online Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) Calculator. This online function, which will be eventually be available on the firm’s official website, will allow drivers and other parties to estimate their blood alcohol content with a reasonable degree of accuracy.
The firm offers a wide array of legal services including criminal representation, domestic violence, juvenile crimes, adoptions, and so on. However, Robert A. Dodell is reaching out to the communities he serves in order to help them avoid trouble with the law based on drunk driving offences. He states, “A DUI charge can change your life in many ways for the worse if you are found guilty, and the consequences only get much worse if you are charged with a second offense. Given our extensive experience working with clients from all walks of life, I have found that many drivers tend to take to the streets because they are simply unaware of their blood alcohol content. I’m making our BAC Calculator freely available to them in the hope it will encourage them to stay off the roads if they exceed, or are too close to the legal limit.”
He adds, “The most important aspect about DUI charges is that they are often easy to avoid. Information is power, and we want to give our website users the power to check the blood alcohol concentration. More importantly, the legal limit is just one indication of how safe it is for them to drive. Please keep in mind that the BAC is not the only factor in a DUI. If anyone is impaired to the slightest degree, no matter what the alcohol level result shows, it is illegal to drive. However, if a driver’s BAC is too high, this knowledge may be enough to persuade a potential driver to stay indoors or find someone else who can drive them where they need to go.
Notably, however, Attorney Robert A. Dodell cautions that no online BAC calculator or chart can be completely accurate. This is due to the fact that a person’s BAC is influenced by a variety of factors. While the firm’s new online calculator will take the number of drinks consumed over a certain period of time (along with the individual’s body weight and gender) into account, their BAC will likely vary based on multiple other factors. Furthermore, an online calculator cannot account for the complex chemical interactions that occur in their body should the individual also be on any medication, prescription or otherwise. Drivers are therefore advised not to rely too heavily on the accuracy of their online BAC calculations.
Elaborating on the consequences of being convicted of a DUI, Attorney Dodell states, “You could face jail time, lose your driving license, be put on probation, have to carry out community service, be subject to hefty fines, and endure a loss of civil rights. This also applies if you are only charged with a misdemeanor.” As previously stated, a second time offender faces much harsher penalties, as the law enhances the penalties when there are multiple offenses.
