For truckers, under .08 BAC can still create a big legal mess

Like all but one of the other states, North Carolina's state law allows officers and prosecutors to charge a Rocky Mount resident with drunk driving automatically if they test for .08 or greater blood alcohol content, assuming the test was properly administered. While not impossible, someone who has under a .08 BAC is less likely to be accused of drunk driving and, thus, less likely to lose his or her license.

Can I face traffic offenses for refusing to submit to testing?

Drivers in North Carolina can become understandably confused when there are questions about their rights during a traffic stop and what traffic offenses they can face. If a law enforcement officer makes a stop or is investigating a potential incident of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is an easy mistake to make to believe that the driver has the right to refuse to submit to a breath or chemical test. The law, however, says otherwise. Understanding this law and the charges a person might face for refusal is important when planning a defense.

What if I face traffic offenses with a suspended license?

Traffic offenses can vary in the severity of the punishments they lead to, depending on the circumstances. Drivers who are dealing with allegations of traffic offenses and might lose their driving privileges or face other punishments because of them should be aware of the importance of having a strong legal defense to avoid the harshest penalties.
