Think twice about getting in your car while under the influence of drugs because you can get a drugged driving charge by simply sitting in the front seat. Driving under the influence of drugs is punishable with a DUI; but did you know that you can get a DUI without driving the car? This type of charge is called an actual physical control DUI and it is more common than you think.
For drunk driving, the .08 blood-alcohol standard for intoxication has been adopted in every state. For drugged driving, however, the question of what constitutes illegal impairment depends on the state and on the substance.
