    "Needless to say she`s been remitted to Youth Aid services where calls from the Maury Povich show have been coming in hard and fast."

    hopefully that`s a joke haha, although it is the perfect story for Maury.

    "Where are her parents", you might be inclined to ask.

    I don`t know about her mom, but I assume her dad is the father of her child.

    "A New Zealand girl pulled over under suspicion of DUI returned a reading six times the legal limit were she actually the legal driving age of 15. Oh, and she was also four months pregnant."

    I hate to be a grammar Nazi but I don`t know where to begin with this sentence

    Well, the legal limit for anyone under 21 in America is 0.02 BAC, which will get you a DUI if you get pulled over.

    I`m not sure if the conversion from BAC to mcg will yield 0.02 = 150, but if it does, that means she had a BAC of 0.12, which is a DUI (0.08 is the limit) for anyone over 21 in America, but not terribly so. A rough calculation figures a female at 15, she had about 4 - 5 drinks in one, maybe two hours.

    Of course, the only reason this is getting headlines is because she is pregnant, and one drink is too much in that case.

    No the legal limit is 0.02 BAC, I ran into the law before and I know this for a fact.

    Everyday substances contain alcohol, mouthwash being the most referenced and usually the most encountered. However, you would need to be rinsing with a rather large quantity of mouthwash to be above 0.02. Non-alcoholic beers also contain a very very low percentage of alcohol, yet it is still legal for anyone under 21 to drink because it would be a feat to get above 0.02 on near-beer.

    Its just a safeguard so kids cannot get pegged for underages and DUIs because they wanted minty fresh breath or had the urge to drink the bile that is O`Douls.

    Well that was a much easier conversion than I had thought. So 150 mcg is 150 micrograms of alochol, and BAC is measured in milligrams of alcohol / deciliter. Move the decimal point down three spots and the limit for people from 15-20 yrs in New Zealand is 0.015 BAC, a bit more stringent than the US.

    Her actual BAC was 0.0828, which if she were of the legal drinking age in the U.S. would just barely be in the DUI range. So in relative terms she wasn`t that awful drunk, but way too drunk for her age, to be driving, and to be pregnant.

    Thanks for bringing that up dilldog, I was under the impression that the 0.08 limit was a nationwide mandate, but it must just be the minimum limit for some states.

    i remember my friend in LT had reached a BAC of .48 once, thankfully he wasnt driving, but he was walking around being an idiot and ended up being arrested since he wasnt of legal age to drink, (its 18 there and he was 17 at the time). After spending the night in jail his BAC was still .08 in the morning

    My uncle, a cop, was giving me a ride once when a call came over the radio to attend an accident near where we were. When we arrived, we saw a car had hit 3 power poles in a row, SHEARING THEM COMPLETELY OFF, before becoming a U-shaped metal thing wrapped around the 4th pole. Poles are 50m apart, and made from tough wood. The driver said he`d been doing 60 kmph (about 35 miles) and kept insisting it loudly and abusively, despite the evidence of our eyes and the power poles. We took a blood alcohol reading and he was over 0.40, the legal limit is 0.05, so he was 8 times the limit at least. He died later that day of alcohol poisoning or injuries sustained in the accident, nobody cared which. All agreed he was a Class One F-Wit. It sounds nasty and uncaring, but cmon, insisting you were doing 60 when you`ve sheared off 3 power poles? Most cars woould be hard-pressed to shear one.

    Relatively it`s not that bad.
    If drinking age is 15, and driving age is 15, and she`s 14...
    Compared to most of the US: Drinking age 21, driving age 16.

    Who has obtained alcohol before their legal age of consumption?

    The only bad part of this is that she`s pregnant, and the right under it, is she was driving drunk, and right under that, she was driving.

    Oh well...

    DuckBoy, you fail to mention the bad parts of being drunk illegally, as well as being drunk while pregnant (not so good for baby).

    And Asspenny, that`s a good way to think about it, to be honest. Don`t drink until you die. Don`t drink until you kill someone (ie drink and drive). Other than that w/e.
