Samenvatting The aim of this study was to evaluate the characteristics of traffic offenders with unusually high blood-alcohol concentrations (BAC > 0.4 g%) when arrested. The BAC that kills one person might be easily tolerated by another, depending on, among other things, the person's age, pattern of drinking, and the development of tolerance. The archives of two forensic laboratories, one in Sweden and the other in Wisconsin (USA), were searched to find traffic offenders with BACs > 0.4 g%. The results were compared in relation to the person's age and gender, mean BAC and the weekday and time of day of the arrest. (Author/publisher)
