EBP Description: 

Lower blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits for underage drivers and/or a risk of loss of license when an underage youth has been found to be drinking, even if the youth was not driving. Usually this limit is set at the minimum that can be reliably detected by breath-testing equipment (i.e., .01-.02 BACs). Zero-tolerance laws also commonly invoke other penalties such as automatic license revocation.
