What Is Considered "Drunk Driving" in North Carolina?

North Carolina defines drunk driving as driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher. This means that if you were driving with a BAC of 0.07% at the time of the accident, you could still be held liable for damages. In fact, you could be held liable even if you were below the 0.08% limit at the time of the accident if it can be proven that you had a BAC of 0.08% or higher at the time you were driving.

In North Carolina, you can be convicted of driving under the influence if you:

  • Are under 21 and have a BAC of 0.02% or higher
  • Have a BAC of 0.08% or higher
  • Are driving while impaired by drugs or a combination of drugs and alcohol
  • Have a child under 16 in your vehicle and you have a BAC of 0.02% or higher

The penalties for a first-time DUI can be severe. You could face up to 120 days in jail, fines of up to $1,000, and a mandatory ignition interlock device for one year. You may also be required to attend alcohol education classes and complete community service.

What Is the Difference Between a Drunk Driving Accident & a DUI Collision?

When you are researching your case, you will likely come across the terms "DUI accident" and "DUI collision." These are two different ways of referring to drunk driving accidents. The term "DUI accident" is used to refer to any accident involving a drunk driver, regardless of whether or not anyone was injured. The term "DUI collision" is used to refer to an accident in which someone was injured or killed.

In a DUI collision, the injuries are often severe. The victims may be left with lifelong disabilities, including paralysis, brain damage, or loss of a limb. In some cases, innocent people are killed. In these cases, the surviving family members are left to grieve the loss of a loved one and cope with the financial burden of paying for the victim's funeral and burial expenses.
