How much can you drink and stay under the drink drive limit?

There is no fool proof answer other than do not drink and drive. There are several variables that affect a person's reaction to alcohol. Your weight and stress levels are the most obvious, the less you weigh and the more stress you are under the less tolerant you are too alcohol. Gender, age and metabolism are also important to consider in how long alcohol takes to be break down within the body. Any of these variables directly affect behavior by reducing your awareness and act out of character. Sometimes not remembering anything of the night before, so be wise and drink responsibly.

The law in the UK on drink driving is 80 milligrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, 35 microgrammes per 100 millilitres of breath or 107 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of urine. In most other European countries, the limit is less, usually 50 milligrammes per 100 millilitres of blood. Try working this out before you have had something to drink! Don't drink and drive.
