EVALUATION OF FACTORS INFLUENCING DWI IN NORTH CAROLINA. FINAL REPORT

Though the Safe Roads Act has had a significant impact on Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in North Carolina, impaired driving is still a large problem and additional ways to effect a reduction in it are being sought. This study focuses on the 10-day administrative revocation (ALR), arrest for Driving While License Revoked (DWLR) under the ALR, and the use of the Prayer for Judgement Continued (PJC) for those convicted of DWI in North Carolina. As part of the study, clerks of court were surveyed regarding problems with the 10-day revocation. The results indicate that there are some difficulties with the the 10-day revocation which may still be ameliorated through streamlining the processing of these cases.
