Driving while under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs is against the law in Michigan. In 2010, there were 868 traffic accidents that led to at least one fatality. Of those 868 crashes, 329, or 37.9 percent of them, were caused by a driver driving under the influence. To clarify what that means, here are some facts about what can lead to a DUI in Michigan.

Driving with a bodily alcohol content of .08 constitutes a DUI offense. A bodily alcohol content of .17 is a high BAC crime. Also, driving after using any amount of a Schedule 1 drug, such as cocaine, is considered a DUI crime. There are additional factors to consider if the driver is under the age of 21. For someone who isnt 21, it is illegal to drive a car with a BAC of .02 or higher. Likewise, it is illegal to purchase alcoholic beverages, and a misdemeanor to have alcohol in the car without an adult present.

For the DUI crime itself, there are several different classifications in Michigan. One occurs when a driver is operating a vehicle while visibly impaired (OWVI). This means that a police officer can tell by watching a vehicle that the driver is driving under the influence. The operating while intoxicated (OWI) charge is used when the drivers BAC meets or exceeds .08, or .17 for a high BAC DUI. An operating with the presence of a Schedule 1 drug (OWPD) DUI occurs when there is any trace of a drug in the drivers system, whether they appear intoxicated or high. The drug trace would become known after a drug test is administered. Finally, there is the Zero Tolerance DUI. This is the charge used when a driver is under 21, and under the influence or in the possession of alcohol or drugs.
