"It's important for people to understand that DWI and vehicular homicide statutes do not only apply to public roadways. There there are some differences in the fact that you don't necessarily lose your drivers license if an incident occurs off-road, but DWI and vehicular homicide are something that's involved in a situation where somebody's hurt or killed, whether it be in a watercraft on a river or lake or pond, or whether it's on a public roadway, or if it's an ATV or a 4 by 4 operating on private property. If people are impaired by drugs or alcohol and somebody is hurt or killed, there is significant consequences."
