26.3.2 Blood alcohol level of 0.05


The Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission has made a policy decision that, where an actual blood alcohol level reading is available, (most likely in motor vehicle accident claims), the level of 0.05 (0.05g of alcohol for each 100ml of blood) is a strong indicator of being 'under the influence ' and should be applied as the standard for determining whether the exclusion in S4(13) applies.
