Driving while impaired is commonly referred to as drunk driving, or “DUI/DWI.” While a person is typically charged with “driving while impaired” if they are found to have consumed alcohol over the legal driving limit and continue to operate a motor vehicle, this charge can also be used when a person drives a car while under the influence of other substances, such as controlled drugs. Even driving while taking prescription medications can be considered “driving while impaired” if the medications cause the person to be unable to operate a motor vehicle safely.
