Arlington BUI Info

In the state of Virginia, both adults and minors can be charged with Boating Under the Influence (BUI). For adults, the BAC limit is still .08%. For minors under the age of 21, a zero-tolerance policy has been put in effect.

It is a common misconception that one a person will not get into very much legal trouble for BUI, but the fact is that drunk boating is just as serious as drunk driving. If arrested, you can face a misdemeanor or a felony BUI charge. (If the arrest was concerning a boating accident, you will more than likely be charged with a felony.)

The penalties for BUI include:

You could also face penalties from harbor officials, boating clubs, and yacht clubs wherever applicable.
