Driving without a license

In North Carolina, the penalty for driving without a license is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor for any person. This offense may be committed by drivers whose licenses have been suspended or revoked, or by people who never had a driver's license in the first place. The specific penalty for each offense may vary depending on the reason a license is not produced by the driver.

Trucking Accidents

If you drive along the roadways of North Carolina, you are probably aware of the dangers that large commercial vehicles can pose to other drivers. While professional drivers should adhere to a high level of precaution, some do not take their responsibilities seriously enough. At Baker Billick, we understand how critical it is to protect the victims of truck drivers' negligence and stand against unlawful or dangerous actions on the road.

New law could keep pets off drivers' laps in Asheville

You love taking your pet in the car, but you always make sure he's not in your lap or a distraction to you. There are different kinds of grating and devices designed to keep pets safe and out of the way during drives. Still, you see other drivers with pets in their laps all the time. It's dangerous, and that is changing in North Carolina.

The dangers of drowsy driving

Drivers in North Carolina may be negatively affected by several conditions when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. The use of alcohol or drugs will obviously impair a driver's ability to focus and respond to his or her surroundings. Even extreme emotions may affect concentration while driving. However, according to UCLA Health, another potentially dangerous condition while driving is drowsiness. Driving while sleepy is responsible for an estimated 100,000 accidents annually, and many experts agree that that number does not even encompass all probable cases. Drowsy driving may even result in the same behaviors as drunk driving, but it is not as easily identified.

This weekend, don't let one bad play cost you the game

Even if you aren't a football fan, you are likely aware that the Super Bowl is this weekend. Millions of people tune in to this game every year, even if they only want to watch the commercials. And if you are like most Super Bowl viewers, you are likely going to be watching with a beer or cocktail in your hand.

Impaired driving

Impaired driving in North Carolina can cause a variety of serious problems for both the driver and those in his or her vicinity. According to the Centers to Disease Control and Prevention, an average of almost 30 people die in alcohol-related traffic accidents each day in the United States. Alcohol abuse and the impaired driving that results may be more common in certain age groups. Among fatal accidents involving drivers with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher, almost one third of all offenders were 21-24 years old.
