  • Drunk Driving Acronyms
  • DUI
  • This generally is interpreted as an abbreviation for driving under the influence.  By far, the most common impairing substance is ALCOHOL.  However, many states also prohibit DUI DRUGS and DUI TOXIC VAPORS (sniffing or huffing paint fumes, butane, paint thinner and similar chemicals).
  • DWI
  • The next most common acronym is DWI.  Depending on the state practice, this can be interpreted as an abbreviation for driving while intoxicated or driving while impaired.  Like DUI, many states proscribe impaired (or intoxicated) driving as caused by other impairing substances, drugs, plants or chemical compounds.
  • OUI
  • The next most common acronym for drunk driving is OUI.  This stands for operating under the influence.  The word operating is actually more encompassing (and more accurate) than driving because almost all states make it illegal to operate or be in actual physical control of a motor vehicle.  This means that you can be sitting in your car, off the side of the road, with the engine running and the car in park, and asleep, yet still be charged with OUI (or DUI or DWI, for that matter, in most states).  The states that have OUI as their acronym are Maine , Massachusetts , and Rhode Island .
  • OWI
  • Another acronym for drunk driving is OWI, or operating while intoxicated.  Similar to OUI, the operative word is operating.
