Good things for women to know about drinking and driving

A man who drinks, for example, five beers in three hours will typically be less affected than a woman who drinks the same amount in the same time. This seems unfair, but it is a reality that can lead to bad outcomes. For instance, take a woman who is having dinner with a male friend she split a glass of wine with. He seems fine to drive, so she thinks she is fine, too. However, she may well be at greater risk of being pulled over for DUI.

Here's an instructive North Carolina-based tale about videotaping

From the recorded exchange that recently took place between a Wilmington police officer and a North Carolina resident he stopped for allegedly being involved in an illicit drug-related transaction, two things quickly emerged as patently clear.

Know how medication can affect DUI tests

If you are stopped for driving under the influence and the law enforcement officer performs a field sobriety test and you fail, it is highly likely you will be arrested on the spot. In North Carolina, if you are 21 years or older and your blood alcohol concentration is 0.08 percent or above, you are legally impaired. If you are under 21 years of age and have any alcohol in your bloodstream, then you are legally impaired and should not be driving as the state has a no tolerance policy in place for underage drinking.
