DUI/DWI Basics

Each state has its own DUI laws and penalties. Although the laws of every state are unique and the details of these laws certainly differ, there are some general trends as to how states define and penalize driving under the influence. 

To get a DUI conviction at trial in any state, prosecutors must prove the motorists was operating or in actual physical control of a vehicle (some states require actual driving) while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Also, DUI penalties in all states are structured around how many qualifying prior DUI convictions the driver has.
