Blood Alcohol as a Measure of Intoxication

Emergence of Experts

Blood alcohol limits have been in existence since the early 1920’s.
Throughout the 1930s and 40’s many European countries put alcohol limits
in their laws based on chemical tests. In the United States it wasn’t
until after WWII scientists got the call to find out limits to
‘intoxication’.

In October 1966, California passed implied consent laws were passed,
requiring drivers suspected of being under the influence “consent” to a
blood alcohol test. But it wasn’t until 1982 (AB 7 Hart) that blood
alcohol levels were actually put on the drunk driving statutes indicating
0.10% of blood alcohol was illegal to drive an automobile.
