This information is used to determine how inebriated an individual is. Driving a vehicle with a BAC higher than 0.05% is against the law in Italy and you will be deemed as ‘driving under the influence’. If you are younger than 18, which is the legal drinking age in Italy, then you may face strict penalties if you are caught drink-driving. Keep in mind that it is never a good idea to drink-drive no matter how old you are.

Hong Kong is another great place to visit and rent a car, but keep in mind that petrol prices can be expensive at around $3.06 per litre.
