What is an OWI?
OWI stands for operating while intoxicated and is a traffic law violation in which the vehicle’s operator has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% if they are over 21 and .02% for minors. The circumstances of the offense will dictate the nature of the penalties, which may include fines, license suspension, and jail time. Legally intoxicated drivers who have not recognized their own limits have chosen to engage in reckless and dangerous behavior for which they are accountable for, endangering every driver on the road.
