Driving While Impaired
In North Carolina the law regarding DWI is that you may be found guilty of Driving While Impaired if you are driving a vehicle while impaired by an impairing substance or by registering a .08 or above on the intoxilyzer.
But there is so much more to a DWI. First, the officer has to have a reasonable and articulable suspicion to pull your vehicle over. Next, the officer has to establish probable cause to make a DWI arrest. There is no requirement for a driver to blow on the alka-sensor (black box) roadside, nor is there a requirement for a driver to submit to field tests or even answer the officer’s questions. A driver must present registration and license, and further must submit to the intoxilyzer for breath alcohol content or lose their license for a year for failing to blow.
