Michigan DUI Lawyer
Have you been cited for driving under the influence? Unfortunately, incidents of drunk driving/DWI are not a rarity. Furthermore, alcoholics are not the only people who drive while intoxicated. In fact, the majority of reported DUI cases in the US involved casual drinkers.
Drunk Driving Definitions
Drunk driving can be legally defined in several ways. The most common definitions in Michigan and the rest of the United States include:
- DUI – Driving Under Influence
- DWI – Driving While Intoxicated
- OWI – Operating While Intoxicated
- OUI – Operating Under Influence
- OMVI – Operating Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated
Many casual drinkers often think that they can still drive after a few drinks, but in most cases they are wrong. Acceptable Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) levels vary across states. In Michigan, for example, the limit is set at a .08 BAC. It only takes 3 drinks to reach that level.
As you can see, it doesn’t take many drinks to impair your driving ability and send you over the legal limit. In fact, it might even take fewer drinks to reach the limit depending on your weight and size. If you have recently received a DUI, it is important that you know your rights.
