With tens of thousands of prosecutions annually, drunk driving is perhaps the most heavily litigated and legislated crime in the United States today. The offense is described differently from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and includes terms such as DWI (Driving While Intoxicated), DUI (Driving Under the Influence), DUII (Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants), OMVI (Operating Motor Vehicle Intoxicated), and OUI (Operation Under the Influence), among others. While the elements of drunk driving laws vary from state to state, most states confine their drunk driving laws to misdemeanors. The law continues the trend among jurisdictions to assure vigilance against drunk drivers.

Defense counsel should anticipate that many evidentiary problems may be expected over the course of a drunk driving prosecution, and potential civil license revocation.
Further, defense counsel should know which objections can and should be made at trial to ensure that only relevant and reliable proof offered by the prosecution is ultimately admitted into evidence by the court. Defense counsel should know how to respond to a prosecutor’s comment on the defendant’s refusal to take a blood alcohol test [with regard to a drunk driving case].
Defense counsel should also be aware of the weight of circumstantial evidence against the accused in a drunk driving prosecution.
