Driving while impaired is an offense that can have serious consequences for a person. While it is generally a misdemeanor, it is punishable by up to two years in prison and up to a $4,000 fine. There is also a mandatory loss of license for at least a one year period. You may be eligible for a limited driving privilege. A DWI conviction will normally increase your insurance by 450% for a three-year period.

If you were injured in a DWI accident, you have the right to be justly compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and past and future pain and suffering. However, when a driver whose blood alcohol content level is in excess of the state limits caused your injuries, you may also be entitled to damages over and above your actual damages.

License Revoked

Under North Carolina law, any person whose driver’s license has been revoked and who knows that he is driving with a revoked license is guilty of the offense of Driving While License Revoked, a Class 1 misdemeanor.

Driving While License Revoked is a serious offense that may result in serious consequences. The punishment for this offense can be as severe as 120 days in jail, depending on the convicted person’s prior driving record. Also, a convicted person’s license will be revoked for an additional year with no limited driving privileges. This offense also assigns eight insurance points for anyone who is convicted.

Speeding Tickets

Getting a traffic ticket is no fun. It may even ruin your day. But don’t let it ruin your driving record too. It rarely makes sense to plead guilty to what you have been charged with in the case of a traffic ticket. Not only might your insurance premiums go up and you have to pay more each payment to drive your car, but you also lose the clean driving record you may have had before the ticket. Moreover, pleading guilty in a serious case may even cause you to lose your license, send you to jail, or result in your car being confiscated.
