DUI Laws

It is illegal in every state to operate a motorized vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher. States use different terms such as DUI (driving under the influence), DWI (driving while intoxicated), DWUI (driving while under the influence) or DUID (driving under the influence of drugs), but regardless of the term, it basically means the same thing. If you are operating a motorized vehicle while you are impaired by alcohol or drugs you could face severe penalties including: fines, imprisonment, high insurance rates, parole, community service, and forced alcohol education.

Hiring a DUI Lawyer

If you have been charged with DUI, contact a DUI lawyer immediately. States have implemented DUI laws which are very severe. Even first time offenders may face severe DUI penalties.
