What is OWI?

Drunk driving is commonly called DUI, or Driving Under the Influence, or DWI, or Driving While Intoxicated. In Iowa, the charge is called Operating While Intoxicated, or OWI. It is a crime to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, or with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above, or with any amount of any controlled substance in the blood or urine.
Drunk driving is a very common offense, and many people are caught after making an honest mistake of getting behind the wheel after one or a few too many drinks. Iowa law recognizes this, and allows, in some cases, for deferred judgment.
