Perhaps some locals can weigh in on this.

No, as I posted on the previous pages, it was indeed 2 permille (or 2.0 in Europe), that is 0.2 (i.e., 2.5 times the US limit) in the US/Canada.

That's why he got the suspended 6-month jail time. Everything above 0.1 is considered a crime (and leads to some jail time).

Had he blown 0.02, it would have been just a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine and 3 "penalty points" (when you reach 12 points, you lose your driver's license), if my memory serves right.

And, BTW, I have yet to meet a countryman/woman who would "routinely drink beer for breakfast."
