What is OVI? OVI is the label for DUI in Ohio. In 2004, the Ohio legislature changed the statute to use the words "operating a vehicle under the influence" which in turn has given us the acronym OVI. Prior to this, Ohio used the acronym OMVI, or "operating a motor vehicle under the influence". It is most commonly known as "driving under the influence" or DUI. No matter the name used, it still means the same thing, drunk driving.
With the change from OMVI to OVI also came other changes in the law that impact the charge, driving privileges, and other aspects of a DUI case and conviction. The law on drunk driving in Ohio has traditionally gotten tougher over time. The necessity of hiring an attorney to understand and defend the DUI charge has increased.
