    Even though the legal limit is .08, I would take you to jail for Public Drunkenness and Child Endangerment Charges with a Child in the car.

    I'm a very lenient Officer, but that would drive me over the edge. There would be no excuse that could get you out of it.

    It is .08, the same with no children, but the penalty for doing so would be a state jail felony and the punishment would be minimum of 180 days to max of 2 years with a penalty not to exceed $10,000. Don't do it.

    Any cop that pulls you over, and you have ANY amount of alcohol on your breath, and a child in the car.....

    They'll pull you out of the vehicle, shoot you, and give the kid to foster care.

    Tell them to be a better parent.

    BUT!! if their driving with a kid, it should be 0.0......period
