    Ok, so this is something that I never quite understood. What exactly is the difference between a DUI and a DWI? Which is worse?

    Just different names. DWI is Driving While Intoxicated and DUI is Driving Under the Influence.

    ONLY? A DUI is very serious shit no matter how you cut it...I think the law is, with the 1st one you lose your license (or at least get it restricted) for 3 months. With the 2nd, you lose it for 3 years. And the 3rd, I think it's 5 and they take away your car...though some people have told me it's a permanent revocation. Not to mention the thousands of dollars that each offense will end up costing you.

    I know it's serious, that's why I used the word only when speaking of how lowly an offense it was. :rolleyes: However it has since gotten stricter, before (when I got mne) it was max $500 fine, license suspended for a month, and possibility of community service. :rolleyes: That was in Texas by the way. :rolleyes:

    Wow...the laws in Illinois are pretty hardcore in comparison. I got in about that much trouble (except for the license) just for underage consumption! At the age of 20 and 1/2 years!! I was a drunken passenger in a car!!! [​IMG]

    Yeah, the laws were pretty lax then, but it was a few years ago. :rolleyes: Never got more than a warning for underage consumption or possession, alcohol or pot, though. :D Haha I guess the cops weren't too bad, just said to do that shit at home. :D
