DWI Bail Bonds
In North Carolina, intoxicated driving can cost the driver a lot of pain, heartache, and financial loss. When you need DWI bail bonds services in New Bern, NC, Grimes’ Bail Bonding & Notary Services is ready to help! Being charged with Driving While Impaired, or DWI, includes much more than drunk driving though in NC. Its Safe Roads Act of 1983 combined all drug-related and alcohol-related driving laws to fall under the single offense of DWI. A DWI now includes an open container in the vehicle, buying or giving alcohol to a minor, or lending your ID to a minor so they may purchase alcohol, and driving under the influence of drugs.
In NC, you are legally impaired if your BAC, or blood alcohol concentration, is or exceeds 0.08% if you’re 21 years old or over. However, in the case of commercial drivers the BAC limit is 0.04% and for drivers under 21 years old any BAC can result in a DWI charge. A DWI conviction always includes serious penalties, from fines and fees to jail time and license revocation. In many cases a judge will also order the defendant to enroll in a substance abuse program or alcohol safety course. And even after the completion of the courses then you will endure higher car insurance rates.
Implied Consent Law
North Carolina, as every other state, abides by an Implied Consent Law. This means when you operate a vehicle on the roads of NC, you’ve consented to chemical tests for BAC determination by law enforcement officers. This also means if you refuse a chemical test from a law enforcement official then your driver’s license is immediately revoked for at least 30 days and possibly up to 12 more months, even if you aren’t convicted of a DWI.
