North Carolina prohibits the operation of a motor vehicle on any highway or public place:
Actual physical control of the vehicle. North Carolina has extended the term “operation” to include having “actual physical control” of the vehicle. So, depending on the specific circumstances, a driver can be convicted of a DWI without the vehicle actually being in motion.
Under the influence. A North Carolina driver is considered to be under the influence if the ingested substance has caused appreciable impairment to the driver’s faculties.
