What is a safe amount to drink and still be under the legal limit?
The simple answer is that there is no way in knowing for sure. There are so many factors that affect the amount someone can drink and still remain under the legal limit. The amount and type of drink consumed as well as age, sex, weight and metabolism all play a part in how well someone can cope with alcohol.
Knowing you are over the limit on the night you are drinking is one thing, but it's far more difficult to know if you are safe to drive the next day. According to the Department for Transport (DfT), one in five drivers found to be over the limit are caught the morning after they consumed alcohol.
Because the amount of time that alcohol stays in the body will vary from person to person, it's impossible to know for certain if you are safe to drive the following morning.
