Michigan OWVI (Operating While Visually Impaired)

One of the more common ways that a Michigan DUI lawyer in Macomb, Oakland or Wayne county can help their client fight a drunk driving charge is by getting the charge lowered from OWI (Operating While Impaired) to OWVI (Operating While Visibly Impaired). Michigan law recognizes Operating While Visibly Impaired as less severe, since it doesn’t necessarily imply a bodily alcohol content. Additionally, if your MI DUI lawyer gets your charge lowered to OWVI (Operating While Visibly Impaired), the penalty is still quite severe.
