Commonly referred to as drunken driving, the acronyms DWI and DUI refer to driving a motor vehicle when the alcohol content in a person’s blood is above the legal limit set by statute and it is not safe to drive. In DUI cases, a combination of narcotics and alcohol can be said to cause an individual to be under the influence. The drugs causing or contributing to the impairment need not be illegal but can consist of lawfully prescribed or over the counter medication.

Penalties can include fines, suspension and/or revocation of one’s driver’s license, incarceration, mandatory attendance at DUI schools, community service, probation, and installation of a breath alcohol ignition interlock device.
