True but it is well known how many pints you can have and the whole idea is to get it across that you can hardly have any and be safe but that one will be ok. Nearly no one is going to go out and have one drink. Anybody going out is going to be over the limit. This is just for the odd person who wants to join friends and family for one drink before driving them all home. These people are no danger to anyone. In the town where I live taxis are often not available since the crash so that these sort of solutions are handy and this low level tolerance further protects people from being over the limit the next morningAre there many auld lads these days frequenting pubs and having just the 1 or 2 over the course of an evening. In the past you would hear about the publican dropping their best customers home (the alcoholics spending all their money in the pub 7 days a week). The limit is too confusing with this blood alcohol limit as most I guess would not really now how many units equate to the blood to alcohol mg limit.
