North Carolina DWI laws allow for felony DWI charges pursuant to N.C.G.S. 20-138.5. That is often referred to as “habitual driving while impaired.”
It’s important to note, habitual DUI is technically different from sentencing as an “A1 DWI” offender pursuant to Laura’s Law.
In certain aspects, they are related, especially regarding considering prior convictions for impaired driving.
