Mistakes during traffic stop could lead to drug charges

Have you ever wondered what you'd do if you were driving down a North Carolina highway and a police vehicle came up from behind with lights flashing in an obvious attempt to pull you over? Perhaps you don't have to wonder because it has happened to you in the past. Hopefully, you were already aware of what to do and not do in such situations. Traffic stops can be quite tricky to navigate. If you say or do the wrong thing, you may wind up getting a ticket.

Are police roadblocks illegal?

In some senses, it would seem that the Fourth Amendment makes it illegal for the police to use roadblocks. After all, you have a right to avoid searches and seizures without probable cause. Police need a warrant. In most cases, without that, if you are stopped by a police officer and you ask if you're free to go, he or she has to let you go.

What are the Blue Ridge Parkway alcohol rules?

The alcohol rules on the Blue Ridge Parkway start the same as they are anywhere else in North Carolina. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit is .08. Driving while impaired is illegal. Drivers must follow the speed limit, which maxes out at 45 mph on the Parkway, at all times.

What North Carolina drivers should know about license suspensions

Losing your ability to drive is a direct threat to your well-being. It can impact your ability to get to work, take your kids where they need to go and even take care of your basic needs, such as going to the grocery store. For North Carolina drivers, it may be beneficial to know grounds for license suspension and how to regain your right to drive.
