DWI and DUI Attorney

Know the Difference Between a DUI and a DWI

Both DWI and DUI charges are taken quite seriously. A Glen Burnie DWI lawyer can help you figure out the difference between the two, so that you can understand your own charges and help prevent future charges from occurring. According to the Maryland Department of Motor Vehicles, being charged with a DUI (driving under the influence) is the top alcohol infraction. It is mainly classified by you having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher while behind the wheel.

Consequences of being charged with a DUI include:

  • 12 points automatically marked against your driver's license
  • Instant revocation of your driver's license
  • Fine of $1,000 for a first offense
  • Fine of $2,000 for a second offense

You may be charged with a DWI (driving while impaired) if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .07%, or you fail a field sobriety test. Officer judgment has a major impact on a DWI.

Consequences of a DWI include:

  • Fine of $500 for both a first and second offense
  • 8 points marked against your driving record
  • If your license is revoked because of either one of these charges, you must attend an Alcohol Education Program
