What is Boating Under the Influence (BUI)?

Boating Under the Influence is a serious offense that occurs when an individual operates a boat or watercraft while impaired by alcohol or other substances. Similar to driving under the influence (DUI), BUI is a criminal charge that carries significant legal consequences. The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit for operating a boat is the same as for driving a vehicle, and exceeding this limit can result in severe penalties. 

Legal Implications of a BUI Charge

Facing a BUI charge can be daunting, with potential consequences including fines, loss of boating privileges, and even imprisonment. A BUI conviction can also impact your personal and professional life, leading to a tarnished reputation and difficulties in employment. Navigating these legal waters requires skilled legal representation to ensure your rights are protected and your case is presented effectively. 

The Risks of Boating While Impaired

Boating while impaired not only poses legal risks but also endangers the lives of the operator, passengers, and other individuals on the water. Alcohol and drugs can impair judgment, coordination, and reaction times, increasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries. It’s crucial to understand the responsibility that comes with operating a watercraft and the importance of sober boating.
