Difference between DWI and DUI ? 

The difference 

between DWI and DUI is also different in each state, and different between the state and the federal goverment. For some states (examples, Virginia and New Jersey) there is no difference between the two terms - they both mean drunk driving. In Minnesota, there is no such term as DUI (they use the term DWI - driving while impaired). A DWI is issued when the blood alcohol content (BAC) is over the 0.08 limit, whereas a DUI is a less severe term, given when someone's BAC is under 0.08.
