Owi drunk driving laws

Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) is the official and most common term used in Iowa to refer to "operating under the influence" or to a Drunk Driving Charge. Operating While Intoxicated also goes by other names such as: Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Operating Under the Influence (OUI) and Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated (OMVWI).

what does Iowa law prohibit?

Iowa law prohibits:

  1. operating
  2. a motorized vehicle
  3. while under the influence, or
  4. while impaired, or
  5. with a detectable blood alcohol concentration level at or above the legal limit.

operating any vehicle

A person is considered to be "operating" a motor vehicle if he or she:

  1. is driving the motorized vehicle, or
  2. has the vehicle under his or her control.

"Under his or her control" is broadly defined to include vehicles that are parked and running, vehicles that are parked and not running with the keys in the ignition, and may include vehicles that are not running with the driver in the driver's seat if the keys are available. In other words, if the driver could have driven the vehicle, it is under his or her control.

a motorized vehicle

A "Motor Vehicle" in Iowa is considered as any vehicle that is propelled by a motor. Vehicles included, but not limited to, are cars, trucks, boats, jet skis, all terrain, tractors lawn mowers and even an electric wheelchair.

while under the influence

Under The Influence is defined as an individual that is considered not to be acting in his/her full consciousness. Therefore, this individual's functions and judgement are impaired, which makes it difficult for this individual to make proper decisions.

The Blood Alcohol Content or BAC limit in the State of Iowa is .08 for an individual of legal drinking age. If the individual is under the age of 21 the BAC limit is lower. It ranges from .02-.08. A commercialized driver also has a lower BAC limit which is .04. If the chemical BAC test is failed, the individual will lose their license for 180 days. can help
