For more than a decade, a blood alcohol content of .08 has been the legal limit throughout the United States.

Every season has its reasons to celebrate, whether it's a holiday or the home team playing a must-win game. When you gather with others to enjoy laughter and good food, you create fond memories together. For many people, celebration includes sharing alcoholic beverages with friends and family. However, if after having a few drinks, you got behind the wheel and drove home, you may have created a memory you would rather forget.
