North Carolina's laws regarding driving while impaired (DWI) are among the strictest in the nation, and recent updates to this body of legislation have strengthened the sentencing guidelines for DWI convictions. Currently, if you are arrested for and convicted of a DWI anywhere in North Carolina, you may:
• Not be allowed to have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of more than 0.04 during your probation
• Not be allowed to have a BAC that exceeds 0.00, nor will you be able to get your license reinstated, if you have been convicted of your second DWI
• Be required to have an ignition interlock system installed in your car if you are convicted of a DWI with a BAC of 0.16 or greater
In addition to these consequences, people convicted of DWI may also have to:
• Pay costly court fines and restitution fees
• Spend some time in jail
• Perform a number of days of community service
