Rhode Island

In Rhode Island you can be convicted of a DWI (driving while intoxicated) for operating a vehicle under any of the following conditions:
  • + with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or greater (.04% or more if the driver was operating a commercial vehicle)
  • + while “under the influence” of any alcohol, drug, or controlled substance, or
  • + with any amount of a scheduled controlled substance (illegal drugs) in your blood.

The prohibition against driving with a BAC of .08% or more is known as a “per se DUI.” A person can be convicted of a per se offense based solely on his or her BAC, regardless of actual impairment. The volume of alcohol necessary to reach these BAC levels can differ depending on the person’s gender, body size and the type of alcohol.
