Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) is a more serious charge than Driving While Impaired (DWI), and results from a breath test measurement of 0.08 or higher. It can also result from substantial impairment in a driver’s coordination, as observed by an officer during field sobriety tests. The maximum penalties are 1 year in prison and/or $1000 fine for the first offense, 2 years and/or $2000 for the second offense, and 3 years and/or $3000 for the third and subsequent offenses. Administrative consequences entail MVA assessment of 12 points against the driver and revocation of the driver’s license.
