North Carolina Drunk Driving Laws

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is the most common way the state determines whether a driver of a vehicle is legally impaired. The limit for drivers 21 years or older is 0.08%, 0.04% for individuals holding a commercial driver’s license, and 0.04% for drivers who have a prior DWI or DUI on their record. Should you choose to hire our legal services, you can be confident that we will be thorough in our investigation to hold the responsible parties accountable.

A number of parties can be held responsible for drunk driving accidents, including:

  • Drivers: Intoxicated drivers are responsible for their own behavior
  • Hosts: Party hosts may be held liable if there is alcohol served at the event, especially if the host continuously provides alcohol to the driver knowing he or she was already intoxicated
  • Bar/Restaurant staff and owners: Bars and restaurants have the responsibility to stop serving patrons who are intoxicated
