Seattle Boating DUI Attorney

While many people understand the dangers involved with drunk driving, few people are aware that drinking while operating a boat can be just as reckless. Washington State legislatures have recognized this risk, which is why they enacted a law preventing the Operation of a Vessel Under the Influence of Intoxicating Liquor, more commonly referred to as Boating Under the Influence -or BUI. This law helps keep all of the waterways between Everett and Olympia safer, particularly the ferry routes between Seattle and Bremerton.

Penalties for Boating While Drunk in King County

If you have been charged with a BUI, you will face up to 90 days in jail and a $1000 fine. Just like a DUI arrest, it is crucial to hire a King County drunken driving defense lawyer in to protect your rights and liberties. Your Seattle Boating DUI attorney from can help explain the key differences between DUI and BUI charges. A few key points of differentiation include the fact that you will not lose your license for boating under the influence and that the sentence is much less severe. It is also important to note that there is no implied consent contract regarding vessel operation, so you can always decline to take any chemical or field sobriety tests without any repercussions.
