In the state of Ohio, it is illegal to operate a vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicating substance, such as alcohol or another drug. If you violate this law, you may be charged with an OVI, which stands for “operating a vehicle under the influence.” You may also hear this charge referred to as a DUI, which stands for “driving under the influence.”

If you fail a blood, breath or urine test, or if you refuse to submit to a test, you will most likely be charged with an OVI. Depending on your past history and the severity of your offense, you may face a number of different penalties, including:

Time in jail
Mandatory participation in a driver intervention program
License suspension
License revocation
Yellow DUI plates
Mandatory Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) bracelet.

The severity of your penalties is heavily dependent on your criminal history. For example, people who are convicted of a third OVI offense will typically pay higher fines and spend more time in jail than people who were convicted of a first or second OVI offense.
