Drinking and driving

The acceptable blood alcohol level is 0. That means even a quarter glass of watery beer puts you over the limit. If they catch you, you will be sent home. If friends let friends drive after drinking, they'll be in legal trouble too.

If you get sent home for drinking and driving, we'll miss you, but we won't feel sorry for you.
