Maine OUI Laws
Administrative and Judicial
Maine’s ignition interlock laws require that any driver convicted of Operating Under the Influence (OUI) with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher, will have their driver’s license automatically suspended. After the first conviction for a driver above 21-years of age, the license is conditional for one year, however, after an additional conviction, the license can be suspended for up to ten years.
The consequences of drinking and driving include:
• Criminal record
• Overall cost of conviction can reach $7000
• Drunk driving accidents and deaths
The Zero Tolerance Law
If the driver is under 21 years of age, Maine has The Zero Tolerance Law, indicating that the driver with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system will be suspended from driving for one year. If there is a passenger under 21 years of age in the same vehicle, an additional 180-day suspension will be imposed.
Maine Ignition Interlock Installation
The reinstatement of driving privileges of a person convicted of an intoxicant-related offense is dependent upon the completion of all other conditions and installation of an approved ignition interlock device. The installation of the car-breathalyzer is voluntary for early restoration of the license.
- One OUI Offense: Reinstated after serving 30 days of the 150-day suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
- Two OUI Offenses: Reinstated after serving 9 months of the 3-year suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
- Three OUI Offenses: Reinstated after serving 3-years of the 6-year suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
- Four OUI Offenses: Reinstated after serving 4-years of the 8-year suspension if an approved ignition interlock device is installed and maintained.
