DUI is an acronym for Driving Under the Influence. It is commonly referred to as "drunk driving" since it signifies operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content above the legal limits, but DUI is not limited to alcohol. Driving under the influence of both recreational drugs and misused prescription medications is illegal.
DUI Diversions are available to those who qualify.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, impaired driving is a chronic problem that will affect one in three Americans in their lifetime. Around 16,000 alcohol-related crashes happen every year. Every day of the year, alcohol-related crashes account for one death every 33 minutes and one person injured every 2 minutes across the nation.
