One Too Many    How Many Drinks Is Over the Limit

   Anyone who drives in Connecticut, or in any other state, with a blood alcohol level greater than 0.08 is breaking the law against drunk driving.  For drivers under 21, the DUI limit is 0.02.

    The number 0.08 means that the amount of alcohol in a person's bloodstream is 0.08 percent or 8 grams of alcohol for every 1000 grams of blood.

    Your blood alcohol level depends on:


How much you drink.


How fast you drink.


How long you wait after your last drink before driving.


How much you weigh.


How much food you have eaten.

    Keep in mind it takes about 1 hour for the effects of a drink to wear off.  Having 2 drinks in 1 hour is the same as having 3 drinks in 2 hours.  Alcohol tends to wear off a little slower in women and in persons under 25.  Variation occurs from person to person.

    A blood alcohol level calculator is available online that shows intoxication levels based on number and type of drinks someone consumes.
