The authorities may charge an individual with a DWI under various circumstances. An individual who operates a vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher may be charged with a DWI. Similarly, if a person consumes any substance that impairs his or her mental or physical abilities and then operates a car, he or she may also be subject to DWI charges.

The legal ramifications of a DWI charge vary depending on the state you're in, but in Missouri, you could face the following penalties:

• A first offense results in up to six months of jail time, a fine of up to $500, and a 90-day license suspension. You may also have to add an ignition interlock device (IID) to your vehicle. The device works like a breathalyzer and locks the ignition if you've been drinking.
• A second offense results in up to one year in jail, a fine of up to $1,000, a one- to five-year license suspension, and an IID addition for a hardship license and to get reinstated.
• A third DWI offense results in up to four years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000, a 10-year license suspension, and an IID addition for a hardship license and to get reinstated.
