Paul A. Lewis, Attorney at Law, www.lewisatlawesq.com. Some states refer to it as Driving Under the Influence (DUI), other states refer to it as Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and a small group of states called it Operating Under the Influence (OUI). In South Dakota it is referred to as a "DUI." This criminal offense generally includes either driving under the influence of alcohol to the extent that it impairs your physical and mental faculties, or driving while you have a blood alcohol content of .08 or greater regardless of whether the alcohol has had any effect on you. The offense is also mistakenly known as “drunk driving” and although the term has no official meaning you don’t have to be drunk (or driving) in order to be arrested and convicted of a DUI.
