Other challenges you may face after losing your license

On our blog, we have written about some of the hardships that people have to endure after they lose their driver's license, from the hurdles that parents may have to overcome to problems related to your job. There are many other ways in which someone's life may be upended as a result of license suspension, however, and we will discuss some of them in this blog post. In Boston, and cities around the entire state of Massachusetts, it is pivotal for those who have had their driving privileges taken away to be aware of their options.

Commercial drivers and driving under the influence

Commercial drivers in Massachusetts are responsible to the public in a variety of ways, from driving children to and from school to transporting hazardous materials. As a result, there are stricter laws and penalties regarding driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Don’t make any of these mistakes at an OUI/DUI checkpoint

Some Massachusetts motorists are surprised to find themselves facing a checkpoint set up to identify drunk drivers. As you approach an OUI/DUI checkpoint, you don't want to do anything to make matters worse or more complicated. Instead, your goal should be to answer any questions asked of you and move on with the rest of your evening.

What to expect if you are pulled over for suspicion of DUI

Drivers in Massachusetts know that driving after the consumption of alcohol is not a good idea. However, you may have had just a couple glasses of wine at dinner and you assume you are under the legal limit, or perhaps you had a lot to drink and made a bad judgment call. If you are pulled over for suspicion, you can expect to be asked if you have been drinking. If you say yes, or if the officer thinks you have been, you will be asked to perform three different field sobriety tests.

Are you facing a DUI charge for the first time?

As a resident in Massachusetts who is currently facing a charge of driving while under the influence (DUI), it's important to know where you stand. Attorney John B. Seed will help you understand what your options are as you prepare to fight to defend yourself in court.

Stay safe this holiday season

The holiday season in Massachusetts is festive, and people tend to drink more than normal during this time. Unfortunately, getting behind the wheel after a night of partying is never smart and DUIs tend to increase during the holidays. Both partiers and hosts need to take responsibility and make sure no one gets behind the wheel after drinking.

Do I qualify for a hardship license?

Driving to and from work is something most Massachusetts residents take for granted. However, if you have a suspended license due to operating under the influence, getting to work may be difficult. If driving is essential to your routine, you can request a suspension hearing for a hardship license at one of the RMV hearing sites.
