There’s nothing wrong with going out, having a drink and having a great time. But if you’re tempted to get carried away, or know somebody who already has, then you should read on to learn more about what could happen in the event of a DWI Arrest.
MYTH: There’s a quick fix!
If you’ve heard that you can eat a big spoonful of peanut butter, drink a lot of coffee or do a lot of jumping jacks and then pass a breathalyzer- you’ve been misled. If you’ve been drinking alcohol there’s nothing that you can do to make it exit your system faster. Alcohol metabolizes in your system at the rate of about one standard drink per hour, so no amount of water or exercise will make it go faster.
MYTH: Just Refuse the Test!
Yes, you CAN refuse the breathalyzer test in North Carolina- but it isn’t without consequences. Refusing a breathalyzer test in North Carolina will lead to an immediate 30-day revocation of your license. Even if you are found not guilty of the charge of DWI in court, your license will be revoked for a year just for refusing the test.
Just Don’t Drink and Drive.
The best solution? Don’t drink and drive. If you are going to drink, always make sure to have a designated driver. Having a designated driver, or taking a taxi or other car service can guarantee that you’ll stay out of trouble and out of jail.
