The search term DUI is a somewhat ambiguous reference to a three letter acronym for "driving under the influence," a crime that is typically charged as a misdemeanor but can also be charged as a felony, as is the case with felony DUI and vehicular manslaughter, or reduced to one of many lesser included offenses, such as reckless driving. In this context, the term DUI is often used interchangeably with the terms drunk driving and DWI ("driving while intoxicated"), all of which typically refer to a criminal charge for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. However, DUI can also refer to a separate criminal offense known as "DUI per se" wherein a defendant is charged with operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08 per cent or higher. As an acronym, DUI can also refer to "Diving Unlimited International," a company that has a prominent presence on the World Wide Web, or the "D language graphical User Interface," a somewhat esoteric open source application program. Adding to the ambiguity is the fact that "DUI" has a plain meaning in Chinese, and the prominent DUI Hua Foundation uses this word as part of its name.
