The Florida legal limit for a driver’s blood alcohol concentration is .08. It can be difficult for a person to determine whether they have had too many drinks or enough to be legally considered intoxicated. Blood alcohol levels play a huge factor in determining if you are driving under the influence in Florida. A standard liquor drink contains one ounce of liquor, a glass of wine is five ounces, one beer equates to twelve ounces - for reference. The state can prove impairment by your blood alcohol level, but it should be noted that the State does not need to "prove" that you are drunk, just that alcohol has impaired your ability to drive and function properly.
