|DUI, DWI, OUI and OUIL are all terms for driving drunk (drunk driving) at or above a certain level of alcohol. Well over a million drivers (1.5) are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs in the United States every year. Even though all states have lowered blood alcohol levels to .08, every state has its own laws and consequences for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating under the influence (OUI) or operating under the influence of liquor.
In addition to drunk driving being a criminal matter (court matter and a crime) it is also an administrative matter pertaining to the drivers license (immediate, mandatory and automatic license suspension). Immediate driver license suspension laws for alcohol-impaired drivers, refers to administrative per se (APS), automatic license revocation (ARL) or on-the-spot license suspension laws. These laws are different for each state and each one has it own automatic license suspension consequences.
