DUI vs. DWI vs. OUI
The terms DUI, DWI, and OUI are commonly used to describe drunk driving charges, but they are not the only ones. Each has a distinct meaning within the penal code of each state.
- DUI means driving under the influence and typically implies intoxication by substances. like alcohol, drugs, prescription medicine, or intoxicating fumes from paints and glue.
- Depending on the state, DWI can mean driving while intoxicated or driving while impaired.
- OUI stands for operating under the influence and is the preferred term for criminal charges relating to impaired or drunk driving, especially in the state of Massachusetts. In informal contexts, the terms OUI and DUI are frequently used interchangeably.
Some other states have other abbreviations as well, like DWAI, which is a less common term that means driving while ability impaired.
Driving while intoxicated is a bad idea, but not having an experienced and skilled lawyer for a DUI charge is even worse. The Law Office of James M. Milligan Jr. is a law firm that specializes in handling drunk driving and other related cases and has been exclusively practicing OUI defense for over 25 years.
