The Norman Police Department is set to hold its fourth Know You Limits educational project this weekend. This project allows officers to have positive contact with bar goers on Campus Corner and in downtown Norman, better educating them on the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for operating a motor vehicle and how little alcohol it takes to get a BAC of .08 or more.


WHO:
           
Norman Police Department


WHAT:
        
Volunteer participants are asked what they believe their BAC is currently, and if they’d feel safe driving a car. They then blow into a breathalyzer in front of their friends. Participants, even those with a BAC in excess of .08, are not arrested for being drunk in public. Instead, they are provided an educational card with information on alcohol consumption. 


WHERE:
       Campus Corner and downtown Norman


WHEN:
         Friday, August 25 starting at 10 p.m.


The first Know Your Limits Project was held in October 2015. During this project, officers made contact with over 200 patrons.
