Did you know that summer is the most dangerous time of year to drive? According to federal crash data, the deadliest months for traffic crashes are July and August. While summer may be the perfect time to relax and have fun, these facts prove that you need to exercise extra caution while out on the road this summer.
May is Motorcycle Awareness Month here in North Carolina and around the rest of the United States. With that in mind, we want to talk about what riders can do to make themselves just a little bit safer while they're on the road.
There's no shame in enjoying a night out on the town -- or a drink with dinner while you're out with friends. If you're a responsible adult, you know you don't want to get behind the wheel if you're too inebriated to be driving. However, given the fact that a .08 blood alcohol content (BAC) isn't very high, you know you could be over the legal limit even if you don't feel drunk.
North Carolina's drunk driving laws are fierce -- and you don't want to find yourself facing a charge of driving while intoxicated (DWI) under any circumstances. Punishment if you're convicted usually involves mandatory jail time, even at the lowest-level offense.
