Would 2 glasses of wine keep me under the legal driving limit in Ontario?

I am a 30 year old male with my G license living in Ontario.

When I go to a restaurant, I like to have wine with dinner.

I usually have a non-alcoholic beverage with the appetizer and espresso with dessert. But with my main course, I usually have 1 or 2 glasses of red wine.

That would keep me under the legal limit, right?

    BAC for impaired driving in Ontario is 0.05, not the 'normal' standard of 0.08.

    With that amount of food, one glass MAY be okay, but everyone is different and everyone metabolizes alcohol differently.

    The only way to know for sure that you're under the limit is to not drink.

    If you want to drink, find alternative transportation.

    That's a very dangerous game to play. There is no way of knowing for sure, but hey, it's your license.

    BAC is calculated by weight and time and is gender specific - use the chart in the source to calculate how many drinks are safe (keeps you below .08 bac)

    That depends on the size of the glasses and the strength of the wine if it's ordinary table wine and you're going to spend an hour in the restaurant you should be fine.
