What is the difference between DWI, DUI, and OWI?



Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is the act of operating or being in physical control of a motor vehicle while one''s blood alcohol level (or breath or urine equivalent) is 0.08 or above.  If one is under 21 years old, one violates this law with a blood alcohol level of any measurable amount.


Driving under the influence (DUI) is the act of operating or being in physical control of a motor vehicle while "under the influence of alcohol."  This can mean that one has a blood alcohol level of 0.05 or above or is impaired by alcohol to an "appreciable degree."


Operating while impaired (OWI) is the act of operating or being in physical control of a motor vehicle while one is so affected by the consumption of alcohol that it impaired his or her ability to operate a motor vehicle in the same way a reasonably careful and prudent driver, not so impaired, would operate a vehicle in similar circumstances.  This is essentially a "zero tolerance" law.
