Differences Between DUI and DWI

Nevada does not stipulate a difference between a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and a DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).  Typically, the term used in this offense in Nevada is DUI.

A DUI is a broader term that refers to those drivers who are operating a motor vehicle while impaired, so DUI can cover a broader scope of impairment including impairment caused by drugs as well as alcohol.  Also, a driver can be charged with a DUI if impairment is evident and regardless of the level of their BAC, thereby making DUI a more general, all-encompassing term.
