Breath and Blood Tests Laws in North Carolina
What is the Sobriety Test Process?
To be convicted of impaired driving, also referred to as DWI and sometimes DUI, your blood-alcohol content (BAC) must be 0.08% or higher. Concord law enforcement uses the Intox EC IR II to measure the BAC on the suspect's breath.
Currently, it is very difficult to fight findings from this device, as it is relatively new and has replaced the prior device used by the state. As a result, it is essential to have knowledgeable defense to examine all of the facts of your police stop, including the circumstances surrounding the breath test.
Blood tests are also used, which can be challenged for accuracy under a number of different points, including the training of the person who took the tests, the equipment used to take it and the handling procedures after the test.
The effects of a reading on either the blood alcohol or breath test that shows you to be over the legal limit must be disputed in every legal way possible.
To be convicted of DWI can imply severe penalties, such as:
- Expensive fines
- Suspension of driver's license
- Jail sentence
- Community service
