DUI Laws Apply To Snowmobiling, Too

A good time snowmobiling at the cabin or out on the trails can end in a frustrating DUI charge.

New Laws Effective August, 2018

The laws in Minnesota are stringent, and a conviction for DUI or DWI while riding can result in steep fines and even jail time. Starting August 1, 2018, our state DWI laws for snowmobiles, boats and ATVs changed.

If you are convicted of DWI in Minnesota after August 1, 2018, you will not be able to operate a snowmobile, motorboat or ATV for 90 days between May 1 and October 3. You will lose this privilege for an entire year if you refuse to take a Breathalyzer test.
