overestimate

People who have been drinking tend to overestimate their ability to tolerate alcohol. Both thinking and reasoning become impaired when people drink or take drugs. We can tell just by the fact that once a person has one drink, they're more likely to have another and then another. They become less likely to consider the consequences of their actions. They underestimate the risks of being on the road, and overestimate their ability to tolerate alcohol. Their judgment is affected; they're less likely to compensate for their other losses, such as impaired vision and slower reaction time, by driving more carefully than usual.
