DWI stands for “Driving While Intoxicated,” which is defined as operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. In States where there is a distinction, this is a greater charge than DUI, or Driving Under the Influence. An attorney specializing in DWI cases may challenge the method of determining the impairment, either suggesting it was improperly used or inaccurate. Another defense may be that the driver was unaware of his impairment, i.e. his food or drink may have been “spiked” with alcohol.
