Articles Tagged with DWIs in North Carolina

There are numerous “monitoring” options available for courts and Judges to impose upon people convicted of DWIs in North Carolina.  At this point, North Carolina DWI laws require the installation of an ignition interlock following a DWI conviction in several instances, including if you blow higher than .14, or if you have a prior DWI conviction in the past 7 years.  In addition, N.C. law continues to increase a Judge’s authorization to require use of a CAM (continuous alcohol monitor), as explained here.

Several states, including South Dakota and Montana, have adopted a new type of program called 24/7 Sobriety.  Basically, every person convicted of a DWI is required to go to a facility and take a breath test twice per day.  If the person fails the test, the person goes to jail.  Now apparently Florida is considering it, too.  But would it work in North Carolina?

I have a number of observations about this program.
