... the comprehensive web site for information regarding drunk driving in Ohio. What is OVI? OVI is an acronym for Operating a Vehicle Impaired. Formerly known as DWI, DUI, OMVI, or drunk driving, the Ohio General Assembly changed the statute to OVI in January 2005 to more accurately reflect the actual scope of the offense since it doesn't necessarily require "driving" or that the "operation" be in a "motor vehicle."
Much of the OVI Law site is provided for the general public as a free resource of OHIO OVI information, while portions of the site require membership and is designed to assist those Ohio OVI attorneys who are dedicated to the zealous defense of Ohio OVI cases.
