If you have been ticketed for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), or operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) you are about to go through a process that is intended to punish and impact you significantly enough that you never do it again. What may happen to you now depends on what you have been cited with and where you have been cited.
Often there will be multiple violation codes on the ticket you received. This is normal, the officer only has one time to charge you and by issuing multiple violations they increase the likelihood of conviction of one of them. The violation codes will specifically tell what you are being charged with.
Things that matter:
Details of the ticket – issuing agency (police dept. or sheriff, etc.), specific court, violation codes
When and where is your court appearance?
Make notes of the traffic stop, details before, during and after. Writing these down early while fresh in your mind may help you in the future.
Often, before your court date, a license suspension goes into effect. Know if that is the case and when.
