Driving While Intoxicated

Driving Under the Influence

There are many types of driving offenses with varying penalties and consequences, but one of the most serious offenses is that of impaired driving. This criminal offense is known by various labels such as Driving Under the Influence ("DUI"), Driving While Intoxicated ("DWI"), and Operating Under the Influence ("OUI"), among others. The labels and acronyms are equivalent to the charge of drunk driving. Various substances, not just alcohol, can cause impairment, including illegal drugs, over-the-counter medications, and prescription medication.

Does DUI Depend on the Weather? Only If You're Not Driving

Can someone who is not driving be convicted of DUI?  They certainly can in Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Washington and other states.  While the law that deals with this is fairly simple to understand and apply, a recent Arizona Supreme Court case is an example of how courts can take even the most straightforward law and create enough confusion and uncertainty to keep legions of lawyers employed full time.
