FAQ's for Drivers in Cranston, RI

driver’s frequently asked question in Cranston

What Is the Minimum Liability Coverage Requirement in Cranston, RI?

Every state requires drivers to have a minimum amount of liability coverage. Rhode Island drivers are required to carry liability insurance to pay for damages and injuries inflicted on someone else in an auto accident.

  • $25,000; Bodily injury coverage per person; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to a single person
  • $50,000; Bodily injury coverage per accident; Coverage for multiple people injured in a single accident
  • $25,000; Property damage per accident; Maximum payment for all damaged property in an accident caused by you

In Rhode Island, motorists must carry at least $25,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person, $50,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident, and $25,000 property damage liability coverage.

Rhode Island is a tort, or at-fault, state. That means your auto insurance is there for the benefit of other drivers whose property you damage or who are injured by you; every other driver’s insurance protects you in the same ways. When you’re in an accident, your expenses are paid through a claim filed with your insurance company or the at-fault party’s carrier, and possibly through personal injury litigation.

What Is the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit in Cranston, RI?

It’s against the law to drive in Rhode Island with the following BAC percentages:

.08%+ at 21 years old or older

.04%+ for commercial vehicle drivers

.02%+ at under 21 years old

In Rhode Island, you don’t have to be drunk, register 0.08% BAC, or even be driving on a public road to be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol. If you’re operating a motor vehicle anywhere—even your own driveway—and the arresting officer testifies that your abilities were at all impaired, you can be found guilty.

What are the consequences of being convicted of a DUI?

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a criminal offense. The more prior convictions there are on a person’s record, the steeper the penalties; jail time becomes mandatory with the second and all subsequent convictions (and it may be ordered with a first conviction). Also, aggravating circumstances can increase penalties.

However, first offenses are typically punished with $100 to $400 in fines, a $500 highway assessment fee, various other fees, 10 to 60 hours of community service, a 3-month to 1-year license suspension, up to 1 year imprisonment, mandatory completion of a DUI safety course or drug and alcohol treatment program, and requirement to maintain proof of responsibility for 3 years.
