Travel Tips and Advisories:
Although the legal drunk-driving limit is .08 mg/ml, we recommend you stay
well below this because of the existence of much confusion over the issue.
The legal statutes of Malta are replete with text explaining how, when and
where they can take possession of a vehicle so our advice is, don't drink
and drive, and be careful out there.
