Ohio has a wide variety of DUIs. The most commonly known type is legally referred to as operating a vehicle under the influence attorney or OVI. OVIs consist of two potential separate charges: (1) the OVI charge, which alleges that the person operated a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or a combination of them; and (2) the BAC charge, which usually alleges that the person operated a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or more, which is determined by a breath sample, or an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine, as well as levels of various drugs. This offense requires three days of incarceration and 180 days of suspension of one’s driver’s license. A second type of DUI is physical control of a vehicle while under the influence. This offense occurs when one is in the driver’s seat of a vehicle with possession of the keys, and the person is under the influence or drugs, alcohol or a combination of them, or has a BAC. This offense does not require incarceration but does require a driver’s license suspension. A third type of DUI in Ohio is operating a vehicle after underage consumption (OVUAC), which makes it illegal for persons under 21 years of age to drive a vehicle with a concentration of .02 percent, but less than .08 percent by weight of alcohol by whole blood or breath, or with an equivalent amount by blood serum or plasma or urine. The court does not have to impose any incarceration for this offense, but must suspend one’s driver’s license for at least 90 days.
