    It's the common answer.

    Why? They know that we can smell the alcohol, and so it would be pretty stupid to say "I haven't had any...", so they choose a number which they believe would not push them over the legal limit.

    Back when most DWI/DUI limits were .10 the answer was usually three drinks. Now that most limits have been changed to .08 the answer has become two drinks.

    They play their games, we play ours.

      I believe he's referring to an Alcosensor road-side test, which is different than the official test at the station.

      It is usually still advisable to wait a period of time before issuing an Alcosensor, but not absolutely required as the road-side test can only be used to determine the presence of alcohol in the subject's system, and not the amount.

      An Alcosensor test is just one more indicia of intoxication used in conjunction with others (not alone by itself) to determine that the subject is impaired and that the quantifiable/court-worthy test is required.

      And as for "JUST", well, the wait time for the actual BAT in most jurisdictions is only 20 minutes. You make it sound like it requires hours and hours before the test can be correctly administered.

                I don't know about anybody else but really,after 4 or 5 drinks,who's counting anymore? By the time they get pulled over and asked how many,2 is as high as they can count anymore!!

                I liked the answer given on Cops one time when the cop asked the crack head how much crack he'd done that day and his answer was...."All of it!" I about fell off my chair I laughed so hard yet admired him for telling the truth!

                    I arrested a biker for OWI one night. While questioning him, I asked how much he had to drink tonight.
                    He thinks long and hard about it and says "Two."
                    I ask him "Two what? Bottles? Cans? Glasses?"
                    He replies, "No, no, no. Cases."
