Blood Alcohol Level

Hi everybody, I was just wondering what is the legal amount of alcohol in your blood permitted on a Class 5 license? I just got a Class 5 and just turned 19 so your answers would really help!

50 mg%, assuming that you don't drive like a moron before that level is reached as there is always section 253(a) of the Criminal Code.

The smart decision is still drinking = no driving, driving = no drinking. Then you will never have to worry.
Have you ever met anyone that would admit to being less than a better than average driver ??

I'm sure you've been brainwashed in school just like the rest of us.
That bit about you just turning 19 makes it sound like:
- You're trying to make yourself sound of age
- You're just turning 19 and super excited to be able to drink.

As a near alcoholic, I strongly urge you to reconsider drinking and driving.
My rule of thumb is zero tolerance.
Cause it's not just "can I got 50 in a 50 zone and get home safe".
You've got to remember that there are a lot of other idiots that are:
1. bad drivers
2. new drivers
3. drunk drivers

So it's not just a matter of can you drive ok.
It's can your even slightly intoxicated self handle other which may be heavily intoxicated.
