Santa Clarita BUI Attorneys

Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP: Protecting Your Rights Every Step of the Way

BUI charges are not uncommon in California due to the close proximity of the ocean. There are many facilities used for boating near Santa Clarita and the neighboring cities. Recreational boating and other types of water activities are popular and common throughout the area.

It is illegal to operate a boat under the influence of alcohol in the same way that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence. If your BAC is above .08%, you can be charged with a serious criminal offense. The penalties for a BUI, if convicted, can include prison, fines, probation, and community service.

Understand Your Situation

The law pertaining to boating under the influence can be very specific, and often complicated. We can help you decipher the regulations so you can understand the situation in which you are involved. If the water vehicle is not motorized, it is not subject to California BUI laws. BUI regulations apply to the activity of waterskiing, as well as the use of jet skis and other watercraft.
