What is the difference between DUI and DWAI in Colorado?

Whether or not a driver is charged with a DUI or DWAI is determined by his or her BAC or blood alcohol content. You can be arrested for DUI (driving under the influence) with a BAC of .08% or higher. However, you can be arrested for DWAI (driving while ability impaired) with a BAC of only .05% or higher.

Whether you have been charged with a DWAI or a DUI, if you have been arrested you should seek legal counsel to assist you. Our Colorado Springs DUI attorney has experience protecting the rights of those who have been accused. A DUI or DWAI conviction on your record could impact your life severely.

For a first offense DUI conviction, you could face:

  • Up to a year in jail
  • Fines up to $1,000
  • 9-month license suspension

If you are convicted for a first offense DWAI, you could face:

  • Up to 180 days in jail
  • Fines up to $500

Penalties for a conviction can vary based on the BAC of the driver, whether or not anyone was injured, the age of the driver, whether or not drugs were involved, whether or not there were minors in the vehicle and the criminal history of the driver. Multiple DUI convictions increase the chances of harsher punishments.

Understanding Your DUI or DWAI Charge

You could be charged with driving under the influence if you are a minor whose blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is 0.02% or higher, or an adult over 21 years of age who has a BAC of 0.08% or higher. For a BAC over 0.05%, you could still face a charge of DWAI (driving while ability impaired).

Penalties for a first-time DUI or DWAI conviction can include:

  • Mandatory jail time from 5 days to 1 year
  • Fines up to $1,000
  • License suspension for up to 9 months
  • Community service
  • Completion of a court-approved alcohol treatment program

When you face a DUI or DWAI charge, prosecutors will often seek the maximum charges and the harshest penalties. If your charge involves DUI and Drugs, then you could be facing multiple charges at once. If you have a prior DUI conviction, then you can expect escalated penalties—unless you fight back.
