Supreme Court ruling may increase drunk driving convictions

According to The Charlotte Observer, the operator of a vehicle is considered a drunk driver if they have a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher. For commercial drivers, the BAC legal limit in North Carolina is just 0.04%. Contrary to what many people believe, even without a BAC test, a police officer may still charge a driver with a DUI or DWI if they are “appreciably impaired.” A DWI is considered a misdemeanor and may lead to jailtime ranging from 24 hours to 2 years or fines of $200 to $4,000.

Crime on the rise again in North Carolina city

North Carolina has struggled to get a hold on criminal activities over the years, but a recent report shows at least one city was experiencing an all-time low. Roughly two hours’ drive from Concord is the city of Durham. According to ABC News, the police chief in the area reported a four-year low in the crime rate for 2018, which dropped by 13%.
