My rant complete, onto the OP’s question. I live in the US, a country founded by puritians wanks full of fear of themselves. I’m sure this is not a popular opinion, but the DUI standards here are insane. One drink per hour will get you over the limit, and potentially could destroy your future. IMHO, this basically zero tolerance policy treats us as children, which causes some people to act like children, unable or willing to use common sense and self control.
One drink per hour? According to an online calc I just looked at a 180lb man can have 4 drinks per hour and he would have a BAC of .08. That doesn’t sound draconian to me.
I have a breathalyzer in my car I bought off of Groupon for $30 and while it’s probably not the best, it gives me a general idea of where my BAC is. I blew a .06 one night and still took a cab home - leaving my car in the parking garage - because I knew I was too fucked up to drive. imho, you know you’re inebriated if your BAC is .08. It’s not just a beer or two.
