Alberta's approach to impaired driving

There are lots of blood alcohol concentration (BAC) estimators available online that can give you a rough estimate of what your BAC might be after consuming alcohol. These tools provide estimates based on your sex and weight, but it is important to keep in mind the other factors that can affect your BAC, such as an empty stomach, medication, mood, fatigue level and the rate of consumption.

But most importantly, please be aware that in certain individuals, impairment can happen with even a small amount of alcohol. It is important that you assess your ability to drive regardless of how much you consume. Impaired driving, regardless of the amount of alcohol consumed, is a criminal offence.
