What is OWVI in Michigan?

Question: What is OWVI in Michigan?

Answer: OWVI is operating while visibly impaired and most commonly referred to as impaired. Impaired is still a drunk driving, but a lesser included offense of OWI. An impaired does not require a .08 blood alcohol level. You can be below the .08 but because of consuming alcohol, you drove with less ability than would an ordinary careful driver. The driving must have been lessened to the point that it would have been noticed by another person.
