The legal limit for drinking and driving is commonly believed to be .08, but in the State of Maryland, the legal limit is actually .07.

A DWI (Driving While Impaired) is .07. A DUI (Driving Under the Influence) is .08. Both are punishable by jail, and both are subject to points against your license.

Generally speaking, a 180-pound man who has three 12-ounce Bud Lights in an hour will blow a .06. Four beers, a .08.

For a 120-pound woman, 1 beer will put her at a .04, and 2 beers will put her at a .08.
