Boston OUI Lawyer
Experienced OUI & DUI Defense Attorney in Boston
If you have been arrested and charged with OUI of DUI in the Boston area, it’s crucial that you seek experienced legal counsel to avoid a conviction and number of serious penalties. In Massachusetts, all drivers are prohibited from driving or operating a motor vehicle if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) reaches or exceeds 0.08%. For drivers who are under the age of 21, the BAC threshold is 0.02%. (Having a BAC above this limit can lead to an
underage DUI offense.) When a police officer suspects a person is drunk driving, he/she has the right to pull over the driver and test his/her BAC level. In Boston, police officers typical determine the driver’s BAC by means of a blood test, breath test, or urine test. If the test results indicate that the driver’s BAC level is above or exceeding 0.08%, then he/she will be arrested and charged with OUI.
It is not only illegal to drive a motor vehicle while under the influence, but you can also be arrested if you are in “actual physical control” of the vehicle. This means that even if you are sitting or sleeping in your parked car on the side of the road, you can still be charged with OUI. If you need to park your car to rest or sleep, the only way to avoid OUI charges in Boston is to park your car and lock your keys in a place that is out of your reach.
