In North Carolina, it is illegal for a driver to operate a vehicle after consuming alcohol to the point that their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08 or higher. It is also illegal to drive under the influence of any substance that impairs their ability to drive. These substances could be anything from prescription drugs to illegal drugs. A driver who refuses to take the breath test that determines BAC can also be charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). The legal limit for BAC is .08, and the aggravated charges kick in when the drivers BAC reached .15 and higher. North Carolina also has a zero tolerance policy, so it is illegal for any driver under the age of 21 to have a BAC higher than .00.
