What is the difference between DUI and DWI in Rhode Island?

Rhode Island DUI and RI DWI consequences are quite harsh. DUI is short for “Driving Under the Influence” [of drugs or alcohol]. Similarly, DWI stands for “Driving While Intoxicated.” Any driver operating a vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Concentration above the legal limit gets a DWI charge. Drivers younger than 21 years of age with a BAC between 0.02 percent and 0.08 percent face DUI charges.
