What are the DUI Laws in Rhode Island?

Rhode Island takes DUI cases very seriously. When caught driving under the influence you face fines, license suspension and possibly even jail time. Here are some possible consequences when caught operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level (BAC) .08 or higher:

First Offense:

  • $100 – $300 fine
  • Up to One Year in Jail
  • License Suspended 30 – 180 days

Second Offense:

  • $400 – $1,000 in fines 10 Days – 1 Year in Jail
  • 10 days to One year in Jail
  • License suspended One to Two Years

Third Offense

  • $400 to $5,000 in fines
  • One to Five years in Jail
  • License suspended for at least Two Years

The actual penalties inflicted depend on other variables such as your age and BAC level. You can find more information on DUI laws at the Rhode Island Bar Association, but for the most realistic outlook you should contact a DUI accident attorney. When your vehicle was involved in an accident there are even more variables that need to be considered.

If the accident caused injury or death, the case becomes a different ball game. Possible consequences become even harsher. Even if this is your first DUI charge you may face one to fifteen years in jail, license revocation for up to five years, and fines as high as $10,000. If the accident caused damage, you may even be held liable in civil court. It is imperative that any individual facing these charges immediately contacts a DUI accident attorney.
