How many to drive ?

How many glasses of wine or beer would you drink and then drive somewhere confidently?

I say 1 or 2 glasses of wine should be fine. Ya know if you go out for dinner or a small gathering...how many would you drink if you had to drive home?

  • Well this happens weekly for me as I go to a networking function each week. I usually have 1 or 2 over the course of hours but most times I just don't drink. I would say one if you were eating and had eaten throughout the day and were going to have a good hour before you had to drive.

  • It really depends on the size of the person and their tolerance to alcohol. A 125 lb women may not even be able to have one drink and still legally drive while a 250 lb. man, may be able to have one or two drinks and still be able to drive legally.
