Many people don't realise that it does not take much alcohol to go over the legal limit of 0.05. There has been a pre-conceived idea that when drinking you can have 1 drink per hour and be under the legal limit. Many people have been caught by the police for being over the limit having followed this practice. The truth is that is does depend on whether you are male or female. Women generally cannot drink 1 drink per hour. This is often due to their smaller size and their different body shapes. Even smaller men need to be careful and aware that their size can cause them to be over the legal limit. There can also be medical factors which can cause someone who has only consumed a small amount of alcohol to still be over the legal limit many hours after they stop drinking.
