District of Columbia DWI Laws
Administrative: DWI applies to a person having a statutorily prohibited blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. You can be convicted in court based solely on the breath, blood, or urine results without any structured field sobriety test.
Judicial: DWI applies to a person having a blood alcohol concentration of .07 percent or lower. Under DC Code, a driver can be charged with a DWI offense if, in addition to a BAC reading, the officer has other signs of impairment from a structured field sobriety test and from observations of the suspect’s driving behavior.
A first offense for DWI can result in jail time of up to 180 days and/or a fine of $1,000. A full list of the penalties can be found here on the DC Metropolitan Police Department website.
