You don't have to consent to police frisking or vehicle searches

In most states including North Carolina, law enforcement officers aren't required to take out a search warrant to go through your vehicle during a traffic stop. Police here in Statesville and elsewhere in the state need only to have probable cause to be able to do this. This means that law enforcement officers must be presented with evidence or facts that you've engaged in criminal activity for such a search to be lawful. There are steps that you can take to reduce your risk of having your vehicle searched.

Drunk driving is dangerous for many reasons

North Carolina and most other states in this country allow motorists to lawfully operate their vehicles on the road provided that their blood alcohol content doesn't surpass 0.08%.

Consuming any amount of alcohol or drugs before you get behind the wheel of a car can seriously affect your ability to operate your vehicle.
