Penalties of boating while intoxicated

Just like there are laws against driving a car while intoxicated, there are laws against boating while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. The offense is more formally known as a BUI or BWI charge. If a law enforcement official suspects that the person operating the boat is intoxicated, he or she will test the driver using the BAC test. A BWI charge will be imposed if the level of blood alcohol content is 0.08 percent or more. This BAC threshold is applicable in New York and all other states.
