What Is DWI?

DWI, or driving while intoxicated, occurs when someone operates a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) at or above the legal limit. This limit is .08 for the average driver and .04 for commercial drivers. Additionally, North Carolina has zero-tolerance law for drivers under 21 that states that a minor should not have any alcohol in their system while operating a vehicle. Should a minor have a BAC of .01 or more, they may be charged with DWI.

Penalties for a DWI can include:

  • Suspension or loss of your license

  • Mandatory alcohol or drug treatment program

  • A permanent loss of driving privileges

  • Fines

  • Jail time
