Boating While Intoxicated Is Dangerous To Everyone Involved

An individual charged with a DUI or alcohol-related offense can face devastating consequences such as jail time, fines or loss of driving privileges. People might believe that these consequences are lessened if the vehicle being used is a recreational vehicle. Unfortunately, boating while intoxicated or boating under the influence can receive the same strict penalties as cases involving other moving vehicles.

At Dusek Law, we can listen to the facts of your case and begin developing a defense strategy at once. We understand the necessity for strong defense. Even a minor offense can have disastrous effects on your personal and professional life. If you receive a ticket or are arrested for BUI, schedule a free consultation as soon as possible.

BUI Charges Can Impact Your Entire Life

Boating under the influence (BUI) laws are intended to curb the problem of boating accidents caused by excessive alcohol use while boating. Under North Dakota state law, a boater is considered under the influence if the blood-alcohol content level is higher than .01 percent. In Minnesota, the legal limit is .08. The penalties for BUI in most states are similar to DUI penalties, including fines, incarceration and loss of operating privileges. Contact our attorneys as soon as you have been charged with BUI.
