Driving Under the Influence (DUI / DWI)

From lawbrain.com



Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, is the act of operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol or other drugs. The designation of the offense can vary from state to state, and includes "driving under the influence," "driving while intoxicated," "operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated." Drunk driving laws often extend to a number of different vehicles, including cars, trucks, boats, snowmobiles, ATVs, motor homes and even lawnmowers.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving is an organization that has sought to increase attention on this issue and is very active in lobbying for stricter laws to punish offenders.
