Driving While Impaired by Drugs

DWI Orange County Attorney

A person does not have to be drunk to be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI). A person can be charged with DUI or DWI if he/she is operating a motor vehicle while impaired by illegal drugs such as: marijuana, cocaine, or methamphetamines, or if he/she is impaired by unauthorized prescription medication. People can even be charged with DUI or DWI if they are driving while impaired by legal medications or over the counter medications such as cold medicine or allergy medicine. Anytime a medicine or drug causes a driver to lose control of his/her mental faculties, the driver can be charged with driving while impaired by drugs.

Once a person is convicted of driving while impaired by drugs, he/she may be sentenced with:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • Mandatory drug/alcohol rehabilitation
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Interlock devices
