Because all forms of drinking and driving endanger the public, lawmakers throughout the country have created strict state laws to govern the activities of drivers, establishing criminal penalties and fines for those convicted of driving while intoxicated. These laws are especially strict for anyone under the legal drinking age. In the state of North Carolina, for example, so-called "zero tolerance" laws make it illegal for motorists under the age of 21 to drive with any quantity of alcohol in their systems.
