State of Maine ignition interlock & drunk driving laws:

Implied consent

Under Implied Consent, you automatically agree to a chemical test (blood, breath, or urine) at any time authorities have probable cause to administer it. If you refuse to take such a test, your driver’s license is likely to be suspended. The suspension could be for a period of up to six years. If you are over 21 and have a passenger under 21 years of age, an additional 275 days will be added to the suspension.

Because it is an administrative suspension, no court action is necessary. Additionally, testimony from the arresting officer regarding your driving performance can result in an OUI conviction even without the BAC test.

If you are found guilty of OUI based on the police officer’s testimony, your refusal to take a test will be considered as an aggravating factor by the judge and another suspension, as well as mandatory jail time, will be included.

Zero Tolerance Law

The State of Maine has a special law if you are under 21 years of age. If you are found operating, or attempting to operate, a motor vehicle with any measurable amount of alcohol in your body, you will lose your license for one year. If you refuse a test, you will lose your license for at least 18 months. If you have a passenger under 21 years of age, an additional 180 day suspension will be imposed.

Drivers under 21 years of age with a BAC of 0.08 or more can be prosecuted for the criminal offense of OUI, but the license suspension must be for one year.
