There are only two answers to this question. leave it parked and return home by public transport, or risk taking the car. Most of the time, this second option is what we choose, because we think that what we have drunk we get home perfectly. But, mistake!
We must first be clear about what the law says. The Rules of the road states that can not drive a vehicle when the blood alcohol level greater than 0.5 grams per liter, or Exhaled alcohol superior to 0.25 milligrams per liter. And how much we have to drink to reach these levels?
Women, on the constitution, they get the same rate of alcohol a man eating less alcohol. In the case of a man about 70 kilos weight, sufficient that it has drunk two beers or two glasses of wine to present a BAC of between 0.25 and 0.50 mg / l in exhaled air. For one woman of about 60 kilos, a beer or a glass and a half of wine would be enough to reach that level.
The penalty fee which they would face both would be $ 500 and lost 4 points driving license.
If alcohol has been ingested amounts to 3 beers or 3.5 glasses of wine, in the case of man, and 2 beers or glasses of wine 2.5 in the case of women, the rate of alcohol amount to more 0.60 mg / l. This is a criminal offense It involved the withdrawal of the driving license from 1 to 4 years and up to 3 or 6 months imprisonment
And if you're a repeat offender? Well, you should know that since last year the Road Safety Act includes penalties for repeat. For these drivers, who have been sanctioned in the previous year for testing positive for alcohol, the penalty is 1,000 euros and withdrawal of 6 points.
