    Heavyweights like me are real men. You honestly saying you wanna be like a little girl, who has 2 shots and ends up drunk??
    Yeah, it's not cool being the sober one when everyone else is mashed and then having to pay another £20 to get soo.

    I generally don't eat before I go out so its cheaper.

    I agree. Though I think there shouldn't be 0 limit as I think it'd be ridiculous for someone to be prosecuted for drink driving and lose there licence for a year just because they had a pudding or chocolate which contained a tiny amount of alcohol or consumed food made in wine etc

    It's annoying when I am getting pissed till 4 am and then I have to drive at 9am sometimes. I mean I feel fine but I guess I must still be over the limit perhaps.

    Hell yes, get drunk on a £10 sounds good to me! Rather than £50...

    I wish I was more of a lightweight lol. But I do work around it, eat less, and drink quicker, sticking to vodka, does the trick!

    Yeah you probably are with that little time between. But that's definitely annoying, had to get the bus into work a few times before since I'd had a late one and feel awful at 8am - got to be over the limit..

    This. There needs to be a small tolerance level. But otherwise, yes, its not a good thing to be doing.

    It is sensible as is.

    A total zero tolerance policy of ANY alcohol in the blood is absurd.
    This.

    If I were to have a taste of some lager/cider, say a couple of gulps, that would not affect my ability to drive in the slightest.

    A zero tolerance policy is daft.

    Trouble with a zero limit I think is... say you had a few pints in the evening but then had a proper nights sleep and say a 10 hour gap. You should be perfectly fine to drive in the morning - but there could well be a very small trace still in your system, this would mean you could be prosecuted if the limit was set at zero, and if it was you may have to wait 24 hours before driving even if you had not drunk much.

    I said yes in the poll. But then I read the question properly. You can't say have a complete ban on alcohol because then you couldn't have say one brandy chocolate even if it's just a little button size chocolate. I'd say lower the limit and increase the consequences.
