The Drink Drive Limit

There are strict alcohol limits for drivers (The limits in Scotland are different to the rest of the UK):-

The Drink Drive Limits

 Level of alcohol   England, Wales and Northern Ireland   Scotland 
 Micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath   35   22 
 Milligrammes per 100 millilitres of blood   80   50 
 Milligrammes per 100 millilitres of urine   107   67 

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to say exactly how many drinks this equals - it’s different for each person, due to some of the following reasons:

You could be imprisoned, banned from driving and face a fine if you’re found guilty of drink-driving.

The actual penalty you get is up to the magistrates who hear your case, and depends on your offence.
