Does a BWI affect your driver’s license?

Is a bui the same as a DUI?

Is a BWI the same as a DUI?
A BWI is just as bad as a DWI. In fact, the penalties are exactly the same. If you get charged with boating while intoxicated (BWI), you could face expensive fines, a driver and/or boating license suspension and possible jail time. If your intoxication causes serious bodily injury or death, you may face felony charges.
