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.

  • OUI Case Against Mechanical Engineer Dismissed

    Over two years ago our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident. He was observed driving erratically, ultimately crashing into a tree alongside a busy road. The responding officer believed that our client had been drinking. Field sobriety tests were administered. Our client failed. Additionally, our client took a breathalyzer. He registered a .26, more than three times the legal limit. Our client was then arrested and charged wiht OUI under G.L. c. 90 section 24 and negligent operation, also under another section of G.L. c. 90 section 24. We succeeded in getting the breathalyzer test results excluded. Today, the day we were supposed to go to trial, the case was dismissed.
