There's a very small window wherein people will admit they're too drunk to drive. If you've had just three or four drinks, you are not yet staggering but already incapacitated... Your reactions will be slower and your ability to avoid accidents will be impaired. But you will not think you are drunk. You won't feel tipsy and you will be able to walk straight.
If you've had several, you may be willing to admit you are incapable, because you already have trouble walking.
If you've had more, you are now at the point where you are way too drunk, but no longer able to tell that you are drunk.
And this will vary depending on your body mass, physical condition, how much food you have in your stomach, and what time of night or day it is. A big guy like me won't hit that first stage until after eight or nine drinks on a good day... And won't hit the second stage until over a dozen. On a bad day, just two drinks will get me to the first stage.
Hindi naman lahat ng tao professional tomador. And even those who are don't always know whether they've reached their limit or not. I know a guy whose one and only accident happened after someone else spiked his drink. Did he know he was drunk? Nope.
Do I condone drunk driving? No. But the problem is we live in a culture that promulgates the idea that it's okay to drive after just two or three beers. Really, it's not. Because after the first two or three beers, your judgment as to whether it's okay to have another two or three before driving home is impaired. Add to that the problem that after just those two or three drinks, that person is already an accident risk due to impaired judgment and reflexes, even if he can drive in a straight line.
If your solution to drunk driving relies upon drunkards being sober enough to realize they're drunk, then there's something wrong with your solution.
Solution? Ban alcohol. But obviously, that would be a very unpopular move.

standard allowable is .05% alcohol content..merong iba zero tolerance talaga basa above 0 dale ka na.. pero as Niky said.. depends on your body mass.. a 90lb person will hit .05% on 1 bottle of beer while a 200lbs person can have 3 bottles before hitting that.. kung hindi nila kaya i ban ang alcohol.. dapat gawing law na may breathlyzer sa lahat nang establishments na nag se serve nang alcohol.. gawin nilang requirement pag kuha nang permit.. pwede naman tong may bayad parang pay phone.. para people can check if they are fit to drive.. sa australia may mga ganito.. nung sobrang lasing namin nag hit nang .08 to .09 yung kasama ko.. we had to wait for 1 hour.. tapos hilamos nang hilamos and inom madaming water and coffee.. para mapababa namin sa .04% bago kami umuwi..
pwede dito sa atin... 10 pesos kada gamit siguro.. parang ganito..
surprisingly.. sabi dito sa wiki.. .05% din ang allowable dito sa Pinas..

^ pag learner or unde P plates ka palang...dapat 0 tolerance..pag nahuli ka tanggal licensya mo..
I'm pleasantly surprised that the law actually agrees with me on the legal limit... because it really does make sense that at that point, even if none of us would actually consider ourselves anywhere near drunk, we are already a danger to others on the road.

Nope. Party. Had beer. Unfortunately, it was beer spiked with Tanduay. Got "I don't know where the heck I am" drunk off of just a few mugs.
