By Danny Glover, OBX Lawyer and Duck NC Attorney
There aren’t many residents in Duck NC, unless your count includes beaks, webbed feet, and feathers. Full time, permanent “locals” amount to about 200 people; but, after Memorial Day, the population explodes to more than 20,000. Clearly, Duck NC is a popular Outer Banks vacation hot-spot.
People on vacation aren’t always aware of their surroundings. That results in two things: More accidents and more criminal charges in Dare County NC- Danny Glover, OBX Lawyer
People don’t seem to appreciate possible dangers, like they normally do at home. They take more risks, perhaps unconsciously thinking, “It’s Duck, what could happen?”
When you take a sleepy town like Duck NC and multiply the population 1,000-fold, crowding the streets with pedestrians and bicycles, accidents are going to happen.
There isn’t a flourishing mass-transit system in Duck NC. UBER and Lyft aren’t really options with 200 full-time residents.
And that adds up to car accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, pedestrian injuries, and bicycle accidents. It also adds up to DWI charges and allegations of criminal charges, felony or misdemeanor, in Dare County, North Carolina.
Law enforcement in Duck don’t go on vacation. Indeed, they step-up enforcement of the NC criminal laws and NC DWI laws. It’s a matter of public safety.
What happens if I was in an accident and I’m not from Duck NC? Do I have to come back to Dare County if I was arrested?

Duck, North Carolina was named for – you guessed it – the amazing number of ducks and other waterfowl that once made their home in the area. In the nineteenth century, before stringent wildlife protection laws become prevalent, Duck was known for its Hunt Clubs, many of which are now restored attractions.
Now, both live waterfowl and the carved decoys of ducks are to be found in this charming and thriving old beach town. Quaint boutiques and Victorian Bed & Breakfasts, including the Duck Smith House, join fine dining and North Carolina water-sports to make Duck one of the most popular beach destinations in the country.
