How much can you drink and then safely operate a motor vehicle? How much can you drink and be legally drunk in Massachusetts? (Legally intoxicated in Massachusetts is .08 if you are over 21 and .02 if you are under 21.) How much alcohol you can safely drink depends on many different factors.
I came across an interesting online breath test (obviously you don’t blow into the computer…at least not yet). You can have a little fun comparing body types and blood alchol content by checking out this website:
This post is purely for informational/fun purposes, it is not a license to have 5 drinks and go drive because the Cops test told you your blood alcohol would only be .075 if you had 5 drinks in 4.5 hours. The test does not take into account anything except the information you punch in. DO NOT USE IT TO ASSESS WHETHER OR NOT YOU CAN SAFELY DRIVE!
There are many factors that effect your blood alcohol, including but not limited to:
- your build
- medical conditions
- how much you eat
- your tolerance for alcohol
If you have taken a breath test and have been charged with drunk driving, call me at 866-981-7888 or email me to set up a consultation.
