Yes – but doing so will likely result in an automatic suspension of your driver’s license. Under the law, holding a valid driver’s license in North Carolina means you give implicit consent to drug and alcohol testing while operating your vehicle.
After pulling over safely, do not answer any questions beyond giving your name, license and registration. If you answer questions like “Have you been drinking? How much have you been drinking?” The police may use your response against you later. Simply answer, “I’ve been advised to not answer any questions.”
Drunk or impaired driving charges can seem embarrassing; sometimes people just want to get it over with by accepting the sanctions. However, it can often be very worthwhile to fight the charge, especially if the police failed to follow protocol.
A drunk driving charge on your record can cause many problems for you down the line. You can easily be turned down for a job or a new apartment by having a DUI on your criminal record.
