Did you know that you can go online to determine how many alcoholic beverages you can consume before being over the legal limit? You should never drink and drive. I wouldn’t trust my life and my freedom to any online app, but let’s take a look at this Blood Alcohol Calculator.
Let’s assume we have a female in Texas, who has consumed two glasses of wine over three hours. She weighs 110 pounds. Click on Calculate my Blood Alcohol Level, and the app determines that she has a BAC% = 0.032, Not Impaired.
The Legal Limit in Texas
The Legal Limit in Texas is 0.08. There has been a federal push to lower the limit to 0.05 in all states, but it remains to be seen whether any legislation will come of that effort. Back in May 2014, Fox26 News approached me for my commentary regarding this issue.

There are some times when you should not voluntarily take a field sobriety test. You should ask to speak to your attorney whenever you are pulled over for a DWI.
I any case, the best practice is always to avoid drinking and driving. Designate a driver, call a cab, always be safe.
