This includes all criminal offenses except minor traffic offenses and specifically includes any offense of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Impaired (DWI). A minor traffic offense is defined, for the purposes of this Paragraph, as a G.S. 20 offense, or similar laws of other jurisdictions, where the maximum punishment allowable by law is 60 days or less.
