Common DUI Myths and why you Need a North Carolina DUI Lawyer
Myth 1: You can only be arrested for a DUI in North Carolina if you are actually driving your vehicle.
Fact: You may be arrested for DUI from simply sleeping in your car (in the driver’s seat) while intoxicated.
Myth 2: If a police officer stops you and your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is 0.04%, you cannot be arrested for DUI.
Fact: Even if your BAC is less than 0.08%, you may be arrested anyway if the arresting officer observes your behavior and determines it is consistent with alcohol impairment.
Myth 3: I have to walk on the line or say the alphabet backwards if the officer asks me to.
Fact: Field sobriety tests are actually optional and you will not be penalized by law for politely refusing them.
Myth 4: Refusing the Breathalyzer is within my legal right.
Fact: The chemical test (including the Breathalyzer) is mandatory and you may get severely penalized for your refusal. Due to North Carolina’s implied consent law, it stands that by holding a valid North Carolina driver’s license, you agree to comply with alcohol and drug testing. Failure to comply will result in stiffer penalties, and you risk the court viewing you as uncooperative.
Myth 5: I can represent myself.
Fact: While you may represent yourself, DUI law is complicated and rapidly changing. Trust a qualified North Carolina DUI lawyer and have someone on your side that is aggressive, trial-tested, and ready to take it all the way to trial for you. Since you are up against professionals who know DUI law intimately, it is best for you to have a knowledgeable lawyer who can protect your best interests.
