A .08 blood alcohol level is impaired in Florida. (and most of the country.) According to the National Institute of Health, .08 is roughly 4 drinks for a 180-pound male, but 3 drinks for a 140-pound female could put her at .10. Every person can vary, and every driver should know their limit.
What should you do as a victim of Drunk Driving?
