Drunk Chinese casino worker smashes into 2 cars, 9 motos and a house.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

That chart ^^ is Blood Alcohol Content not breath. 0.6mg/l is twice the UK driving limit, roughly. Given how small he is and his ancestry he's only had about five beers. I think he's got his foot stuck as that's a big hole and he's dragged a bike with him into that hole.

The Australian limit is 0.05 so he was 12 times the limit.
You are also confusing BAC with a breath alcohol measurement. He's not comatose when blowing in the photo.
"Australia has strict laws about drinking alcohol and driving, with the legal limit set at 0.05 blood alcohol concentration (BAC)"

OK I was wondering how he could even sit up, let alone drive (or be it crash). They always say someone "blew 0.x" in the news though.

It is a stupid chart with no defined units. It could be frogs per rabbits.

As I said in my edit, 0.05%BAC is 0.15mg/l, so he's 4x over Aus.

This might help to explain things
What are the limits ?

This can cause lots of confusion because there are different methods of measuring the alcohol in a breath sample.

In the UK the current limit is:

0.35mg/l = 0.08%BAC = 0.80 mg/ml (Promille) = 0.8g/l

Scotland is:

0.22mg/l = 0.05%BAC = 0.50 mg/ml (Promille) = 0.5g/l

In many parts of Europe the limit is

0.22mg/l = 0.05%BAC = 0.50 mg/ml = 0.50 g/l

50mg/100ml BLOOD

There are also different limits depending on whether you are measuring breath alcohol, blood alcohol or urine alcohol.Please do not confuse these measurements with weights - this is volume The legal limit for alcohol levels in the body whilst driving a vehicle in the UK (except Scotland) are currently:

35 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millitres of breath = 0.35mg/l BrAC

80 milligrammes of alcohol in 100ml of blood

107 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millitres of urine
0.08% BAC (Blood Alcohol Content).

Looks like he's going to miss his high school graduation.

As for nationality, the Chinese certainly have no monopoly on drunken behavior. Hungarians are probably the worst. Or, is Vladimir Bulgarian? I can't remember...

Agreed it should have units (which should be mg/100ml of breath tested if my reckoning is correct)
So he's about double the English limit. In Aus you must be over the limit just from looking at a beer. :beer3:

Didn't they call the Bulgarians who came with UNTAC Vulgarians?
