    Unfortunately Capt. Mercury, DWI is driving while subject to an impairing SUBSTANCE. I agree with you though. G.S. 20-138.1.

    If DWI simply means "driving while impaired" regardless of what the impairment is, I think 10% of the drivers I saw on my way to work this morning should be arrested! I suspect mental impairment by natural causes in most cases. Anyone with a cell phone in one hand and a steering wheel in the other should be subject to DWI.

    I'm just waiting for someone to bash the police for charging this guy with DWI. They seem to be doing it on all the other articles.
