This book describes the laws and procedures governing the criminal prosecution of impaired driving and other implied consent offenses. Of interest to district and superior court judges; prosecutors; and defense attorneys, it provides detailed coverage of the sentencing provisions for misdemeanor impaired driving and related offenses, which are sentenced outside of North Carolina's structured sentencing statutes. The book also describes the collateral licensure and vehicle forfeiture consequences arising from criminal charges of impaired driving and other implied consent offenses.

Other features include:

  • a detailed discussion of license revocations resulting from charges of impaired driving and related offenses,
  • eligibility requirements for limited driving provisions, and
  • the requirements for having one's license restored following a conviction for impaired driving.

The information is current through legislation enacted during the 2014 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.

This edition replaces the 1999 book entitled Motor Vehicle Law and the Law of Impaired Driving in North Carolina, by Ben F. Loeb, Jr., and James C. Drennan.
