Every state has a criminal charge for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Some states call it Driving While Impaired (DWI) or Driving while Under the Influence (DUI) or Operating a Vehicle Under the Influence (OVI) but it’s the same basic charge, driving when you’re over the legal limit for alcohol or drugs.
But just because you’re charged with a DUI doesn’t mean that you’re guilty. DUI defenses are available to anyone charged with driving while impaired, and they can range from the very broad defenses—not actually impaired, for example—to technical or Constitutional challenges.
