Massachusetts DUI Laws
In the state of Massachusetts, it is illegal to drive or operate a motor vehicle if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. According to state DUI law, a person is considered too impaired to drive if his or her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or higher. If a driver is under the age of 21, he or she is prohibited from driving if his or her BAC is higher than .02%. Any driver in Boston or throughout the state of Massachusetts found driving with a BAC at or above the legal limit will be arrested and booked on DUI charges. At this time, it’s best to contact a seasoned Boston DUI lawyer who has the experience and skill to defend you in court. Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement authorities have no tolerance for people who drive under the influence, and always prosecute those people harshly in court.

This past Saturday the defendant, a twenty year old college student, drove his car off of the highway and into a gully where it got stuck. Fortunately no one was injured. Police officers arrived and met with the driver. They immediately observed him to have symptoms consistent with alcohol intoxication. He failed three field sobriety tests and was arrested, booked and charged with OUI. At the police station he took a breathalyzer test and blew a .19 and .21, two and a half times the legal limit.
