In Oklahoma, a DUI is a serious offense. The state has very severe laws when it comes to driving while under the influence. To avoid these, it is important to be cognizant of your actions and make a plan to prevent the possibility of a DUI. If you are pulled over for drinking, you can be charged one of two ways depending on your BAC (blood alcohol content). If it is above 0.05%, yet below 0.08%, you can face DWI charges. However, if it is above 0.08%, you will be charged with a DUI. Both of these, while varying in severity, will have you dealing with:
- Jail Time
- License Revocation
Avoid a DUI, Make a Plan
Making a plan ahead of time for how you will get home can save you a lot of trouble in the long run.

Some plans you may consider are:
- Having a Designated Driver.
