Zero tolerance can mean many things. For example, you're bartending, you see a customer come in, he has one drink, acts inebriated, obviously, he can't handle his alcohol. There's one form of zero tolerance. Another form of zero tolerance clearly states by law, it you are under the age of 21 and get pulled over and blow lower than a .08 and above a .2, you have broken the zero tolerance law and you can be fined and/or lose your license for six months. So, if you are behind the bar and you know it's a customer that had a couple too many, it'd be in your best interest to inquire does he have any intention on driving, does he live locally, can he walk, could you possibly call a cab for him, you can ask if he has a friend. Now, remember, it's never a good idea to drink and drive, especially, if you're under the age of 21.
