What happens in a OUI arrest?

Getting arrested for drunk driving in Massachusetts can begin a series of events that can cause devastating legal and financial problems. OUI conviction consequences may be long-lasting. A motorist arrested for OUI will be asked to undergo a breathalyzer test. There is no effective way to mask a person's breath to defeat this test. Penalties for test refusal can include a license suspension of 180 days to a lifetime depending on the OUI conviction record. The vehicle may also be impounded.

States struggle to enforce impaired marijuana driving laws

Massachusetts and other states which legalized recreational use are beginning to implement new laws addressing driving while impaired. However, the absence of valid testing and other problems may be instrumental in mounting an OUI defense against these charges.
