Drunk driving refers to anyone who drives with a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit. California has a legal limit for both drivers above and below the legal drinking age. The BAC of an individual varies based on the height and weight of that person and how quickly his or her body metabolizes the alcohol. A person who drives drunk has problems concentrating on the road and paying attention to other vehicles.
