What is the Difference Between a DUI and a DWI?
This is a very common question and can be answered very succinctly. The difference between the two is just in wording or semantics. A DUI is a Driving under the Influence. A DWI is a driving while intoxicated. Both terms equate to the same thing which is the crime in California of driving while impaired or Vehicle Code section 23152(a).
