Clifton Missouri DUI Laws and Penalties
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is illegal in all 50 states. Laws and penalties vary from state to state. Some states may refer to a drunk driving related offense as DUI (Driving Under the Influence), DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) OVI (Operating Vehicle Impaired), or OWI (Operating While Intoxicated) but these all refer to the same offense.
An individual suspected of operating a motor vehicle impaired may initially be subjected to a field sobriety test (FST). This is a quick exercise for the driver which is used to determine whether or not they are intoxicated. The police officer may ask the individual to follow a pen with their eyes, recite the alphabet, tip their head back and touch their nose, or walk in a straight line heal to toe. These tasks are difficult to perform for an individual under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
