During Memorial Day weekend, 61 drivers in Oregon were ticketed for driving under the influence. Now that summer is approaching, consumption of alcohol during vacation is more of a concern. The most dangerous consequence that comes with drinking is the risk of driving under the influence. It’s never safe to operate a car under the influence of any alcohol. However, it is legal to drive under a blood alcohol concentration level of .08 in Oregon. BAC depends on a number of factors including gender, weight and even how much food was consumed before drinking. It’s not the same for everyone, and it’s important to know your personal limits. In a social drinking situation, play it safe by designating a sober driver. Even if it’s legal, it’s never smart to let a friend who’s under the influence operate a car. Out of the three deaths that occurred due to drunk driving over Memorial Day weekend, with one being a Eugene man riding a bicycle. Therefore, be especially careful riding a bike at night and do everything you can to make sure drivers can see you.
