How many many drinks are you allowed before the police give you a ticket?

my friend and I are at a disagreement about how many alcohol drinks you are allowed before the police give you a ticket, she says she can consume 3 drinks before she is considered drunk. I say stop at 1 and don't drive.

If you have too many they don't give you a ticket. They arrest you.
If you leave a bar after having one drink and you are pulled over and given a breathalyzer test and you blow over the limit (alcohol on breath) you can he arrested for DUI.
You may not be drunk but the alcohol is on your breathe and alcohol residue is in your mouth.

If your BAC reaches .08%. for the average citizen. You are more correct than your friend. But the best rule to follow is if you want to enjoy a few drinks. Call a taxi when you are ready to travel.

Usually, 1 drink(as in 1 beer, 1 glass of wine, or 1 shot) per hour is enough to hit the .08 mark. Of course this varies by each individuals metabolism and weight.

It depends on your size, weight and how you absorb alcohol. In the United States where the legal blood alcohol limit is .08 mg/dl a good rule of thumb is not more than one drink (1 oz liqueur, 4 oz wine, 12 oz beer) per 4 hours.

bubbles. You are right. Studies have shown the negative effects of only two drinks on driving ability. It sounds like your friend has drinking issues. Three drinks is at least one too many in an evening. Don't let her drive!

Even if you just take cough medicine you can become impaired. Due to the effect it has on the body.

If she is so sure, ask her if she would be willing to have three drinks then drive to a police station and ask to be tested to prove it.
