Do you know how many drinks you can have before you're in danger of getting a drunken driving violation? 

This year in Solon, there have been a number of drunken driving arrests, including many during a checkpoint event earlier this year. As we head into the holiday season, Patch wants you to know when enough is enough.

When police pull drivers over for suspected drunken driving, officers ask them to perform field sobriety tests and to take a breath test to measure Blood Alcohol Content.

A BAC test measures the percentage of alcohol present in a person's bloodstream. Ohio's legal limit is 0.08.

According to the Virginia Tech Alcohol Abuse Prevention website, every 40 minutes, 0.01 percent of alcohol leaves your system. 

Check out the chart in the media portion of this article to see what your limit is.

Remember, the only safe driving limit is no alcohol.

Have a safe Fourth of July!
