UK Drink Driving Limits - Drink Driving Facts.com

You can't calculate your alcohol limit - so don't try.

There is no failsafe guide as to how much you can drink and stay under the limit. The amount and type of alcoholic drink and your weight, sex, age and metabolism will all play their part.

A driver will be found guilty of drink-driving if he or she has more than:
        - 35 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
        - 80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.
        - 107 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of urine.

The quantity of alcohol in a half-pint of beer is approximately the same as in a pub measure of port/sherry or a small glass of wine. But:
        - many beers and wines are stronger than average.
        - drinks poured at home are usually more generous than pub measures.
        - cocktails and alcopops are very strong;
           their high alcoholic content is often masked by the taste of fruit juice.

Any amount of alcohol will affect your judgement, starting with your judgement about whether you should have another drink.

At twice the current legal limit you are at least 50 times more likely to be involved in a fatal collision.
