You may be surprised at what can get you charged with DWI/DUI

Many people think that impaired driving laws apply only when someone is driving a car, truck or commercial vehicle on a public road while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In fact, state DWI/DUI laws can be much broader than that. North Carolina's laws are no exception.

Begin your DUI defense quickly.

We recently discussed the issue of passengers in vehicles having open containers and how the driver is the one who might face legal issues if this occurs. The issue here is that there is a chance that a driver who is in a vehicle with alcohol might be tempted to take a sip. We know that there are people who can avoid doing this, but others might succumb to that temptation.

Open alcohol containers are forbidden in all vehicles

When you are out partying with friends, you might have one who is riding in your vehicle who wants to bring their alcoholic beverage with them when you leave the venue. This isn't ever a good idea because of open container laws. Nobody in a vehicle can have an open container in North Carolina. It doesn't matter if the person is the driver or passenger.

Ending a holiday party arrested for drunk driving stops the fun

Throughout this holiday season, adults must remember that they are free to make choices, but they aren't free to choose their consequences for those. One area that is very important to keep this in mind is when you head out to parties for Christmas and New Year's Day. If you plan to consume alcohol, take the time to find a reliable way home. Even though this might not be too fun, it can help to save you time in jail and criminal court costs, as well as other expenses.

Field sobriety tests might be disputed in a drunk driving case

One of the primary components of a drunk driving stop is the field sobriety test. The officer who conducts this test will either perform a standardized field sobriety test or a nonstandardized test. The difference between these two is that the standardized test has been accepted by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA).
