Anna Bligh's new Minister for Community Services, Housing, Women and Drunk Driving ...

25 August 2007

Senior Queensland Government backbencher Karen Struthers has been arrested for drink-driving at more than three times the legal limit.

Ms Struthers, 44, the Parliamentary Secretary for Health, was driving a government vehicle when she was picked up by police late on Friday night in south Brisbane and gave a blood alcohol reading of .169.

"I am not making any excuses. I probably had four drinks . . . but that is not a good reading at all," she said.

See - MP Karen Struthers 'a bloody idiot'.

Also see - Bligh's new line-up revealed.

That was more than three times the limit on four drinks or was it four bottles?

Pull the other one, it comes with a Ministry ....

How much can I drink and still keep below 0.05 per cent?

For men — No more than two standard drinks in the first hour and one standard drink each hour after that.

For women — No more than one standard drink each hour.

Remember, the only thing that will reduce your blood alcohol concentration level is time. It takes your liver about one hour to process the alcohol in one standard drink. Therefore, after a heavy night's drinking it is quite possible to be over 0.05 per cent the next morning. Coffee, cold showers, vomiting or exercise will not reduce your blood alcohol concentration.
