Hey guys,
had a schooner of new at 6 and none since, thinking of heading back at around 10, is 4 hours enough to go?
take note I'm a NSW p plater, ie 0% blood alcohol level.

Should be, yep. Checking now.

As the liver metabolises alcohol at around one standard drink per hour, the BAC level drops unless more alcohol is consumed.

Take note:

P-plater


OP: They say you need an hour for every standard drink you have, PLUS 3 hours to get it completely out of your system. I would just drink a little bit more water and wait an extra half hour to be on the safe side.

Should be. At best there would be a minuscule amount of alcohol floating around, but more probably you'll be clean.

And what of it? P platers don't metabolise ethanol any slower than other drivers.

I didn't think Breathalizers were accurate enough to pick up much under 0.02% anyway..

Anything (which may very well be 'not much') over 0% BAC for most P platers is enough to get charged for.

I think he's refering to the risk factor involved.

Not everyone metabloises ethanol at the same rate, and thus adding an extra buffer zone can't hurt.

Which is why I made no recommendation as to just how long he should wait before driving/riding. :p

Have another few then head off to the pub. Then drink enough that you know your drunk, but still sober enough to drive.

Technically .001 is enough to loose your licence, I've heard of people getting done after eating a cherry ripe, absorbing the alcohol in mouthwash under their tongue, or the alcohol in bitters from a lemon lime and bitters.
They had the 0.02 to stop this sort of nonsense but it was abused and taken away.

Don't drive like a stupid idiot and you'll minimise being targeted by the coppers. Doesn't mean an RBT could nab you on the way home for a quickie.
