Most people know that a DWI results if their blood alcohol level is a .08
and above. However, what most people do not know is that a lesser offense
to a DWI is a DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired). A DWAI results when
an individual has a blood alcohol level of a .05 to a .07.
While a DWAI is a violation and not a misdemeanor the same result occurs
with a license. A conviction can cause an individual to lose their driver’s
license, pay large fines or have an ignition interlock device installed
in their vehicle.
A .05 is a very low blood alcohol level and can result very easily. As
a rule of thumb, don’t drive if you are going to have a drink. It’s
just not worth the consequences.
