Getting drunk and driving around is the #1 crime that’s broken out there. It’s just everywhere…. More people do that than shoplift.
Many get away with it… Many don’t.
I was always wondering what the difference is in DUI or DWI.Just in case I decided to go cruising and boozing again…
The specific criminal offense may be called, depending on the jurisdiction, driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating while intoxicated (OWI), operating a motor vehicle while intoxicatedOMVI), driving under the influence [of alcohol or other drugs] (DUI), driving under the combined influence of alcohol and/or other drugs, driving under the influence per se or drunk in charge [of a vehicle]. Such laws may also apply to boating (as in Canada), piloting aircraft, and even bicycling in some states such as California.
Check that out… You can get a DUI on a bicycle in some states. What a trip. I’d probably wreck my bike before I’d get a DUI… But I dunno.
I never got popped for drunk driving… I often wonder why since I used to do it a lot. I just thank that dude in Heaven that I never killed anybody…. And now of course I know better. (I hope) 🙂
Take it from the hipster… If ya gotta throw back some brews then do it at the house or have a designated driver… Because they will throw the book at ya for disobedience. It’s a felony in this state on your 3rd offense… Of if the alcohol limit is too high… It just ain’t worth it… You dig?
