Majority/minority of published teshuvos/positions is irrelevant.

So why did your posek tell you that you cannot rely on the minority shitos?

Additionally, you haven’t addressed the last sentence in my first paragraph.

When you say “under the influence” I assume you mean legally – there is a range which is considered “driving impaired” yet has not yet reached the legal limit. Anyway, the legal limit is .08 BAC. For an average size man that would be somewhere around 4-5 drinks. For most people that is probably ???? ??????. It is certainly enough to be ????? ??? ?????.
