OUI on a Motorcycle

MA Motorcycle OUI Defense Attorneys

In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts OUI laws are the same for someone operating a motorcycle as someone operating a car or truck. Owning and riding motorcycle may be a fun, exciting and thrilling method of transportation but you must still obey drunk driving laws in MA when driving a motorcycle. If you are riding a motorcycle in Massachusetts and your blood alcohol content (BAC) is above the legal limit of .08 you may be arrested for driving under the influence. Also, riding a motorcycle while drunk is exponentially more dangerous than driving an automobile should you be involved in an accident. In court, the prosecution may seek to impose harsher penalties on motorcycle riders arrested for DUI.
