Just a funny thought I've had (not sayin' I'd do it or whatever). Providing you're under the limit, could you actually drink a bottle of vodka whilst driving the car? Surely if you don't go over the limit it'd be okay? Bit random I know! Just never seen anyone do it but in theory I guess you could.
Good point, but how would you know if you'd gone over the limit or not?

Not strictly true, you can still be arrested for drink driving even if you pass a roadside breath test. You can be arrested without even being given the option of a preliminary breath test.
Sec.5 RTA 1988 is driving whilst over the prescribed limit and used to arrest when you fail a PBA.
Sec.4 RTA 1988 is driving whilst unfit through drink or drugs, so you someone could be bladdered, blow under, but because the alcohol has effected their driving be arrested.
Fair enough, I don't know the word of the law as it is! These two situations seem quite unlikely though so...
