Women and DUI

Posted by Unknown | Mar 06, 2014 | 0 Comments

A recent argument has come to light saying that current DUI laws discriminate against women. The argument claims that the ratio of alcohol in breath to alcohol in blood is lower for women, causing breathalyzers to show higher readings.

Breathalyzers are generally set to a ratio of 2100:1 but many women have breath alcohol to blood alcohol ratios much lower than that. If a woman's BAC is .06 and her ratio is 1500:1, a breathalyzer will show a reading of .09, over the legal limit.
