Rhode Island DUI Defined
A Rhode Island DUI Attorney will point you to Title 31, section 31-27-2 of the Rhode Island General Laws, which states that a DUI means the operation of a motor vehicle while under the influence of any “intoxicating liquor, drugs, toluene, or any controlled substance.” A blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .08 percent or higher makes you intoxicated in Rhode Island.
Rhode Island DUI Attorney Rory Munns can help you understand that reaching a BAC of .08 percent varies by number and type of drinks (i.e. wine, beer, proof liquor) as well as body weight. A person weighing 100 pounds may reach .08 drinking one 12-ounce beer, while a person that weighs 160 pounds would need to drink four 5-ounce glasses of wine to reach the same level, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
