A DUI in Oregon is not just for alcohol. You can be arrested for driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of any controlled substance or prescription drug if it impairs your ability to drive safely. The DUI is a major violation and can carry hefty fines, court costs, prevention classes and may require an interlock device be installed in your car. Insurance companies charge as much as 25% more if you are convicted of DUI and you will be required to carry an SR22 certificate.
