How common is drunk driving in North Carolina?

When a driver is pulled over and his or her blood alcohol content level is 0.08 percent or higher, they are considered to have been driving under the influence. This offense is very serious and can permanently alter the course of their life. Whether they have difficulty obtaining a job in the future or they are let go from their current place of work, DUI charges can have a significant impact on one's life. It is important to avoid drunk driving, but if you have already been accused of this offense you should carefully look at your options. In North Carolina, many people have found themselves in this difficult position.

According to data presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a 2012 survey showed that 1.4 percent of people in North Carolina admitted to operating a vehicle after consuming more alcohol than they should have in the past 30 days. Across the nation, the rate was higher, with a national average of 1.9 percent of people admitting to driving under the influence. While this is encouraging news for those who live in North Carolina, it is vital to keep in mind that many people still get behind the wheel in this state and across the U.S. after consuming alcohol.

If you were recently charged with DUI over the Thanksgiving holiday, you could be uncertain about how to approach the situation or what your future holds. Under these circumstances, it is critical to take a careful look at your legal rights and different options.
