When you think of DUI charges, you may assume that the driver was drinking heavily or using illegal drugs. However, even people who would never engage in this type of behavior can find themselves facing criminal charges of Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Ability Impaired.
Even perfectly legal, duly prescribed medications can affect your ability to drive safely. Therefore, you can do everything correctly and still end up accused of a DUI or DWAI. In Colorado, DUI is the more serious charge that applies when a driver is substantially impaired by a substance; DWAI is a lesser charge brought when the impairment is slight.
