Drunk Driving Laws in Massachusetts
While most states charge drunk drivers with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated or impaired (DWI), Massachusetts refers to this common crime as OUI, or operating under the influence. Typically, drivers receive an OUI if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests at 0.08 or higher. Drivers can also be charged with OUI if they operate vehicles under the influence of marijuana, heroin, or other drugs.
The Penalties for Driving Under the Influence in Massachusetts
Drunk driving laws in Suffolk County, Norfolk County, Essex County, Plymouth County, Worcester County and throughout the state of Massachusetts are notoriously harsh. If you receive an OUI conviction, you could face significant fines, license suspension, or even time behind bars.
After you serve your sentence, you’ll continue to pay the price; employers in Boston, Cambridge, and North Shore are often reluctant to hire applicants who have been convicted of operating a vehicle under the influence. Likewise, landlords and management companies are permitted to deny applicants with criminal histories. Increasingly selective landlords have been known to pass up otherwise exceptional applicants even if their record has one small misdemeanor from years ago.
