Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated (OWI), better known as drunk driving or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Michigan is operating a vehicle upon any public road, highway or parking lot with an alcohol content of .08 grams or more per 100 milliliters of blood  (commonly referred to as just .08.)  There are many factors that affect your blood-alcohol content.  Among these are your age, weight, sex, how much food you have in your stomach, and what kind of alcohol you were drinking.

“First time offenses of Michigan’s drunken driving law are now eligible for expungement under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

The bills signed by the governor would allow individuals convicted of a first-time drunk driving offense to petition a court to set aside the conviction several years after sentencing. An estimated 200,000 non-repeat offenders are expected to be eligible for the program. ” – Link
