Previous posts on this blog have discussed how the state of Wisconsin has looked at various ways to change and potentially toughen the state's drunk driving laws. Citizens on both sides of the debate have weighed in; at this time no major changes are immediately on the horizon for local drivers. However, one drunk driving law that some citizens may not be aware of is currently in operation and can have serious consequences for a person's ability to drive.
Many Wisconsin drivers may be under the assumption that their blood alcohol concentrations goes up and down exclusively based on how much they have had to drink. While alcohol intake does directly affect BAC, other factors can play into how a breath test will read a person's level of intoxication. Knowing these factors can help a person decide if he should refuse to take a breath or chemical test.
