What Happens To Me If I’m Pulled Over For A DUI?
If a police officer pulls you over under suspicion of drunk driving, you may be asked to perform several field sobriety tests. In North Carolina, if you are asked to submit to sobriety testing, you do have the right to refuse; however, refusal may not be your best option. Comply with the officer and ask for an attorney as soon as possible. DUI is a criminal charge that leads to arrest, and potentially incarceration and fines.
Can The State Take My Car?
In some cases, the state may confiscate your vehicle or suspend your license. This may be for temporary impoundment or for full surrender. If you are concerned about ways to protect your independence and mobility, ask our team about challenging state seizure laws.
