DUI Courts are specialized, post-conviction court programs that provide a structure of appropriate treatment, supervision, and accountability. These specialty courts follow the well-established Drug Court model and are based on the premise that drunk driving can be prevented if the underlying causes of the offending (e.g., substance dependence and mental health issues) are identified and addressed. The population that these courts are developed for are impaired drivers who are not deterred by traditional sanctions and are most resistant to behavior change (demonstrated by their multiple convictions). These offenders are classified as high risk/high need. Each DUI Court participant will have an individualized supervision and treatment plan that is designed to address both their risk level and treatment needs.

As of December 2014, there were a total of 262 standalone DUI Courts in 35 states.

To learn more about DUI Courts, refer to our policy position or visit the National Center for DWI Courts (NCDC) website.

*Limited, incomplete, or no data were reported by the District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, and New York in the 2015 Uniform Crime Report. Data should be used with caution and should not be compared to other states or previous year data.

Note: Because the number of agencies submitting arrest data varies from year to year, users are cautioned about making direct comparisons between 2015 arrest totals and those published in previous years’ editions of Crime in the United States. Further, arrest figures may vary widely from state to state because some Part II crimes of the Uniform Crime Report are not considered crimes in some states.
