Drunk Driving BAC limits around the World before you can get a DUI

Per Se Laws against DUI and drunk driving are tougher these days in many countries. Over 170 countries now impose drink-driving limits, according to a new report by the World Health Organisation. The amount of alcohol permitted while driving a vehicle is different depending on where you go.

Only 88 countries have a legal limit of 0.05 grams of alcohol (or less) per 100ml of blood, the maximum recommended by the WHO.

Some of these countries, such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, forbid any alcohol in the blood.

Britain and Ireland are more lenient than other countries in Europe, with a legal limit of 0.08 g/dl.

Burundi, Palau and Lesotho have the highest limits in the world, at 0.1g/dl.
