What does BAC stand for?

BAC refers to blood alcohol content. New York law enforcement officers use BAC to measure the amount of alcohol in a driver’s bloodstream. BAC is typically determined using a breathalyzer machine, although blood tests are not uncommon.

The legal limit for BAC in the state is 0.08 percent. If you are found to have a BAC of 0.08 or higher, you are likely to be charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). Because drunk driving charges are aggressively prosecuted in New York, it is important to hire a knowledgeable DWI defense attorney.
