"The UK legal drink-drive limit is 80mg per 100 ml of blood (0.08%). That equates to about a pint, but it's safest not to take the risk, since any alcohol will slow your reaction times down."

Is this right? Because I was led to understand that a good-sized man would take 3-4 US "standard drinks" (5-7 UK "units") to get to that level, and this article seems to be written from a mostly male perspective. Also, I remember a Mock the Week joke note  that relied on the audience recognizing without prompting that a man driving would limit himself to two pints.
