|WARNING: It is dangerous to drink and drive after consuming any quantity of alcohol. The reality is, however, that people drink in moderation during a meal or when visiting friends and then need to drive home. One day you will be stopped. If the officer suspects that you have alcohol in your body you may be asked to provide a breath sample. You may need to prove evidence to contradict a breath machine.|
|If you are charged your attorney and your toxicologist will need to know exactly what you ate and drank that day for purposes of proving your blood alcohol content at the moment of the alleged offence. This worksheet may help you to provide that information. If already arrested we suggest you complete the Checklist.|
|NOTE: We are not suggesting that 1, 2, 3 or 4 drinks is safe prior to driving. If you complete this Worksheet after you are arrested, it is not appropriate for you, your companion, and the bartender to make notations on the same Worksheet. Comparison of notes among potential witnesses looks suspicious to the Courts, rather each should prepare a separate Worksheet and not compare notes. If you give up your right to silence be honest.
