Are You Facing Charges For Driving High Or Drunk In Ohio?

While many people still refer to acronyms such as DWI (Driving While Impaired), DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or OMVI (Operating a Motor Vehicle Impaired), Ohio law now encompasses all charges for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol as Operating a Vehicle Impaired or “OVI.” If you appear impaired while driving, law enforcement officers can stop you for OVI in a car, truck, a bicycle and other vehicles with and without a motor.

If you are contending with an arrest for OVI, the law requires you to submit to breath or blood test. Refusing to do so can result in stiffer penalties.
