South African law enforcement officials caught a drunk motorist with a blood alcohol content 32 times over the legal limit near Queenstown in the Eastern Cape on Wednesday.

When the motorist, driving a Mercedes Benz Vito, was pulled over, he was breathalysed and found to have blood alcohol content of 1.6g/100ml. The legal limit is 0.05g/100ml.

1.6g/100ml... that's like, his blood was 1.6% alcohol! I can't believe he lived through that!

No way. 0.08 or 0.1 is the legal limit in most states. He'd be in a coma at .3 level.

Perhaps they have a different legal limit? Ever think of that?
