DWI laws have gotten tougher across the country – the legal limit is now .08 percent blood alcohol content (BAC) in all 50 states. DWI punishment has increased, resulting in extended jail sentences, higher fines, increased car insurance premiums, longer driver’s license suspensions, mandatory alcohol schools, and ignition interlock devices as common penalties. If you have been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) in Missouri, it is important to remember that time is critical. You may lose your drivers license if you fail to act immediately.

Similar to other drunk driving offenses, a person is guilty of BWI when he or she drives or is in actual physical control of a water-borne vehicle (boat, ship, jet skis, or any other commercial or recreational watercraft) and is under the influence of alcoholic beverages to the extent that his or her mental faculties are impaired or when his or her blood alcohol level (BAC) is above the legal limit for the state.
