The Commonwealth of Virginias Zero Tolerance Law makes driving while intoxicated by any amount of alcohol a serious criminal offense for drivers younger than 21. Virginia defines the legal limit for driving while intoxicated at a BAC of 0.08% for those 21 years of age and older.

It is illegal for anyone under 21 to possess any alcoholic beverage. It is illegal to create, loan, sell or use a fake ID. A conviction for possessing or using a fake ID could appear

on your permanent criminal record. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to purchase, possess or drink alcohol. Underage possession is a

Class 1 Misdemeanor and could result in losing your drivers license for up to a year. Loss of drivers license for up to one year

and/or fines up to $2,500 and/or 50 hours of community service and/or up to one year in jail Alcohol is created naturally when sugars in

grains, vegetables and fruits are fermented. Distilled spirits or liquors go through an additional process of evaporation and condensation.

Alcohol proof defines how much alcohol content a beverage contains. A beverages alcohol by volume (ABV) percentage can often be located on the

bottle, can or menu. Which drinks are equivalent to a standard size drink? Standard drinks contain approximately the same amount of alcohol and are helpful in estimating

blood alcohol concentration (BAC). The liver typically processes one standard size drink per hour. Alcohol is not

always served in the same size constraints of a standard drink. Example: You order a 16 ounce beer that has a 9% ABV. How many standard drinks are you consuming?

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the amount of alcohol that is present in the blood stream. At certain BAC levels, alcohol has been shown to alter a persons visual functions and

perceptions. BAC can be estimated based on the number of standard size drinks, weight and gender. If a man weighing 140 pounds has three standard-size drinks, his

BAC will equal approximately .08 percent. If a woman weighing 140 pounds has three standard-size drinks, her BAC will equal approximately .10 percent.

Binge drinking is the heavy consumption of alcohol that brings BAC levels to at least 0.08% in about two hours. Women: Four Drinks Men: Five Drinks

63.2 % of students in a national survey reported keeping track of how much they drank the last time

they consumed alcohol. 71.6 % of students in a national survey reported eating before and/or

2. Determine whether the event is a problem or an emergency and how you can safely respond. 3. Assume responsibility. 4. Come up with a plan. 5. Take action to protect yourself and others. 44.6

% of students in a national survey reported having a friend to let them know when theyve had enough.

Know the law and only drink if youre of legal age. Know what a standard drink size is so you can accurately track how much you are drinking. Pace yourself and dont consume more than one standard drink every hour. Alternate between a non-alcoholic beverage, water and food. Dont drink on an empty stomach. Eat foods high in protein before,

during and after you drink. Stick to the plan you made in advance and get home safely. Remember that only time will lower your BAC. Understand that alcohol affects men and

women differently. Never give your friends a hard time if they choose not to drink. Never drink and drive. QUESTION S?
