DWI-Driving while under the influence of alcohol, medical drugs, opiates, narcotics, or other dangerous drugs and controlled substances can be a very serious offense. A person can be arrested or charged with a DWI if their blood alcohol concentration is .08 or higher while driving. It is scientifically proven that drugs or alcohol can impair your brain and motor skills. Driving while impaired puts your life, those of your loved ones, and the lives of other innocent people in danger.
An arrest or conviction of a DWI can have a negative and devastating impact on your life. It can affect your employment, career, finances, family/personal and work relationships, and freedom.
Punishment for DWI depends exclusively on the number of convictions you have had in the past:
A fine of up to $2,000
Three days to 180 days in jail
Loss of driver’s license for up to a year
Annual fee of $1,000 or $2,000 for three years to retain driver’s license
A fine of up to $4,000
One month to a year in jail
Loss of driver’s license up to two years
Annual fee of $1,000, $1,500, or $2,000 for three years to retain a driver’s license
A $10,000 fine
Two to 10 years in prison
Loss of driver’s license for up to two years
Annual fee of $1,000, $1,500, or $2,000 for three years to retain driver’s license
*If you get two or more DWI convictions in less than five years, you will be asked to install a special ignition switch that prevents your vehicle from being operated if you have alcohol levels above the legal limit.
