The Northern Ireland authorities are serious about drinking under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Currently (Nov. 2008) the legal alcohol limit for driving in Northern Ireland is 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 milliliters of blood, or 107 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of urine or 35 micrograms of alcohol per 100 milliliters of breath.
How much drink will induce these numbers will depend of you age, sex, metabolism and stress levels.
To be safe, don’t drink at all when you drive. To be even safer, don’t drink at all!
We are a family of teetotalers and enjoy life without coming under the influence irrespective of whether we are driving or not. And we recommend this lifestyle choice to all!
Now you know the rules about drinking and driving, do read about Seatbelt safety Laws.
