OUI, DUI, and DWI
If you’ve been charged with OUI, DUI, or DWI in Attleboro, it’s important to understand the difference between these charges. OUI stands for “Operating Under the Influence,” while DUI stands for “Driving Under the Influence,” and DWI stands for “Driving While Intoxicated.” While these terms are often used interchangeably, they can have slightly different meanings depending on the state.
In Massachusetts, OUI is the term used to describe the criminal offense of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s important to note that you can be charged with OUI even if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is below the legal limit of 0.08%. This is because the law in Massachusetts prohibits operating a vehicle “under the influence” of drugs or alcohol, regardless of the BAC.
