Do you live on Earth, drive a car, and occasionally drink? Then this map may be handy for you. It shows the blood alcohol level that each country uses to decide whether or not you're driving while you really shouldn't be. And, for the record, do not drink and drive ever, okay? Great. Problem solved.

While you should never drive while impaired in any way, a number of countries will let you have a small amount of alcohol in your system, though how much varies wildly across the globe. That's why you should keep this handy the next time you're out drinking with pals, and considering country-hopping around in your teleporter so you can drive in various countries.

I've also included a few of the more novel DUI punishments from around the globe, just to be sure you're sufficiently scared out of doing anything stupid. Also, I'm including a world map with country names, since I didn't include them on the main chart, and such a map probably will be useful for other things as well.

DISCUSSION

I would be completely fine with the U.S. moving our limit much closer to 0%. The argument I've heard is that 'Well, what if you're at a baseball game and have 2 beers or 2 glasses of wine with dinner and need to get home?'

The underlying viewpoint is that we have a 'right' to drink in certain situations that will certainly be followed by driving... I don't think this needs to be the case. You can skip the beers at the park, call a cab or have someone else drive you home. On date nights, my wife and I alternate who gets the martini and who gets the Diet Coke. Even if you're at .04, it's hard to argue that you aren't at least slightly impared. Other drivers' right to a booze-free road trumps our right to a happy hour followed by driving.
