If you have been convicted of a DWI in North Carolina, you may be required to get Interlock installed in your vehicle before you are allowed to drive again. Interlock is a device that requires the user to blow into a tube. The user will not be allowed to start the car unless the device registers no alcohol on the user’s breath. Furthermore, the user must be the one convicted of the DWI – it is against the law to have someone else blow!
If you have recently been arrested for a DWI in Wake County, you need to know your rights and how to best handle your case so you can still drive for work. In some cases, you will not need to have Interlock installed to have a limited driving privilege. Under current North Carolina law, Interlock is required if you are convicted with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .15 or greater, or have been convicted of a second DWI offense.
