New Jersey DUI Attorney Discusses the Amount of Drinks One Can Have Before Driving
As an experienced New Jersey DUI Attorney I am often asked by college students how many drinks they can legally have before driving. If you’re a college student, and you’re at a college party, and you’re consuming alcohol, and you’re under the drinking age – it means that you’re not 21 or more – you shouldn’t be consuming alcohol because there’s a zero tolerance for alcohol consumption and driving.
If you’re 21 and above, and you’re consuming alcohol, and you want to know how many drinks you can have before driving, it’s really determined upon your metabolism. If you had one drink and your metabolism throws off a blood alcohol content that hits the legal limit and your standard field sobriety tests are poor, you’re going to be successfully convicted of a DWI, which is not something that you want. Like anything else, your metabolism will have a great effect on what your blood alcohol content is if you drink before driving.
