IF I HAD ONE BEER OVER THE LAST HOUR, AND THEN GOT CAUGHT, IS THAT POSSIBLY A VIOLATION?

Probably not. If you were 90 pounds, and you had two beers over two hours, you'd be a 0.04, and that's just an estimate because everybody's different, and it doesn't convert predictably. For example, if you weigh 170, the estimate is you have to have at least 5-½ beers over 2 hours to be at a 0.08.

The problem with 0.08 is that it is just an arbitrary number. They have studies, supposedly, from the 1970's, but it really is arbitrary. I know that I should not drive after just a few drinks, but there are people out there who have such a tolerance that they could drink a whole lot and still drive.
