North Carolina

In North Carolina, it’s illegal for any human being to drive a vehicle while noticeably impaired by or with an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher. If you’re a commercial motor vehicle driver, a limit of 0.04 is too much to drive, and you should probably sleep it off.

South Carolina
In South Carolina, it is illegal for any human being to drive a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol to such an extent that they’ve compromised their faculties. If any driver commits three offenses within a five year period, their driver’s license is suspended for four years.
Virginia
In Virginia, it’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol concentration that is higher than 0.08. Also, any points on your record that are obtained through drunk driving will remain on your record for two years. A DUI currently ranks at six (6) points in the State of Virginia. Please don’t ever drink and drive, it’s truly not worth it.
