Types of DUI
- Felony DUI: if you were driving under the influence and committed an aggravating factor such as child endangerment, hit-and-run, manslaughter or other serious crime as a result of your intoxication.
- Drugged driving: DUI is not limited to the effects of alcohol intoxication. Driving under the influence of narcotics or other controlled substances can result in serious criminal penalties. Even if you have a prescription you may face criminal charges if consuming the substance leads to your impairment and inability to safely operate the vehicle.
- DUI as a commercial vehicle driver: driving or operating a commercial vehicle while under the influence can result in criminal charges and the loss of your commercial driver’s license.
- Operating a motorcycle, watercraft or even a bicycle while under the influence can also result in prosecution, fines and other criminal penalties.
