Officer testing for sobriety
By operating a boat on Oregon waters, you have given consent to submit to field sobriety and breath tests. Refusal to be tested can be used as evidence in a court trial.

Oregon law establishes the following penalties for those arrested and convicted of boating under the influence of intoxicants. They may:

  • Be fined up to $6,250 and/or sentenced to one year in jail.
  • Lose operating privileges for one year and be required to complete a boating safety course.
  • Have all boat registrations in their name canceled for up to three years.
