i think the number they mentioned up there belongs to 'keys please'
it's a reputable company that has 2 people come and get you, one of them drives your car back to your place while the other drives you home.

it's a real company and most local businesses will advise their employees to call KP or a taxi home during their annual christmas parties.

having one beer is pointless. So you may as well have 0 beers, keep your blood alcohol lvl at 0, and not risk your license.

Get a breathalyzer for $15-20 and keep it in your car. Much easier than guessing.

The average body processes 1 serving of alcohol per hour (1 beer, 1 glass of wine, etc), though I don't know if that will keep you at 0.00 but it's certainly a good indicator for whether you're below 0.08

Because you know, cops really use the same $15-20 breathalyzer that you can find at Spencers.

This shouldn't even be a question.

IF YOU HAVE YOUR N.. you don't drive if you've been drinking. At all. End of discussion.

See my sig if you have any questions.

"whether you're below 0.08 "...if you are a N or L, knowing if you are below .08 is no use unless you are 100% below. Someone else posted the right answer...have an N or L, no booze at all, zero, zilch...it even tells you that on your restrictions.

Even with your Class 5, if you blow over .05 and under 1.0 you'll still fail the roadside breathalyzer and receive a 24 hour prohibition, AND have your car impounded for 24 hours.

Most people this happens to never think it will happen to them, but its oh-so-easy!

We're talking about a GLP driver here, where any reading on a screening device is grounds for a 12 hour suspension. The question was how long do you have to wait after drinking before the screening device would show no reading. I agree with the sentiment that if you drink, don't drive, especially as a GLP driver as the risk of making a mistake is just too high.

However, the average person's body will eliminate about 15 mg% per hour. This is the equivalent of a single standard drink (1 beer, 4 oz wine, 1 oz hard liquor) ingested by a 165 pound individual. Given that it takes time to absorb the alcohol and then time to eliminate it, I might suggest that 2 hours is probably the minimum time needed to get back to no reading on the screening device and more than this would be safer still.

It all comes down to if you want to bet your license on your guess at 100% absence of alcohol in your system. In court it takes an expert from a Lab to sometimes decide this.
