This story deals with alcohol breath analysis. The 1990 conviction rate for drivers who registered .10 or more and were prosecuted for DWI is 85.4 percent. That figure is the lowest since the Safe Roads Act overhauled drunken driving laws eight years before. The courts' treatment of DWI cases is not as consistent as the legislature hopes when it passed the Safe Roads Act. Conviction rates are also inconsistent, varying among North Carolina counties.
