Laws involving drinking and driving vary between the Carolinas

Many South Carolina residents spend time in North Carolina enjoying the beaches and other attractions, visiting family and friends or attending college. Many laws regarding drinking and driving are the same in both states. For example, if you're 21 or older, a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or above can get you arrested in both states. That drops to just a .02 BAC if you're under 21.

Field sobriety test results: Not always accurate

Field sobriety tests are a way that the authorities check on the mental and physical condition of drivers on the roads. Drivers who cannot pass these tests aren't necessarily intoxicated or using drugs, but they could have issues occurring that make it dangerous to be behind the wheel.

Man moved to prison after suffering in ill-equipped jail

This interesting piece of news points out the issues in some jail and prison systems in the United States.

A North Carolina man described his time in an ill-equipped local jail and was finally moved to a state penitentiary as a result.
