Drunk driving occurs when a person is driving an automobile after consuming alcoholic beverages to the extent that his ability to drive a motor vehicle is impaired. Drinking and driving charge can have a number of different names or abbreviations including Driving While Impaired (DWI), Driving Under the Influence (DUI), or Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI).
In Colorado, when you are charged with drinking and driving
, you have only 7 days, including weekends and holidays, to request a hearing with the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles. If you don’t, your license could be revoked for three months to one year, in some cases for more than two years. And if you don’t request a hearing, you forfeit your right to appeal the DMV’s decision to revoke your license.
