IMPAIRMENT IS NOT DETERMINED BY THE TYPE OF DRINK, BUT RATHER BY THE AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL DRUNK OVER TIME.

A STANDARD DRINK IS DEFINED AS 330 ML OF REGULAR BEER (4.9% ALCOHOL), 100 ML OF WINE (13% Alcohol), OR 30 ML OF DISTILLED SPIRITS (40% Alcohol) (WHISKEY, VODKA, RUM ETC., WHICH CONTAIN THE SAME AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL
