Safety Requirements in Boston

Seatbelt law

In Massachusetts, every vehicle driver and passenger must wear a seat belt (with a few exceptions). Anyone over 16 who’s found not wearing a seat belt can be fined $25. If passengers under 16 aren’t wearing seat belts, the driver can be fined $25 for each of those passengers.

Under Massachusetts law, any child under age 5 and any child weighing 40 pounds or less must ride in a child passenger restraint, such as a booster seat, car seat or infant seat. Also, a child under 8 must be fastened into child passenger restraint, except if the child is at least 57 inches tall.

Helmet Law

Any bicycle operator or passenger under 16 must wear a helmet. Regardless of age, every motorcycle operator or passenger must wear a helmet.

A violation of the bicycle helmet law can lead to a fine of up to $20.

Anyone violating the motorcycle helmet law faces a fine of $35 for the first offense and a fine of $75 to $100 for the second offense. In addition, a violator can be hit with an insurance surcharge that lasts at least six years.

Handheld Law

Massachusetts law prohibits texting while driving. However, it allows talking on a cellphone while driving (unless the driver is under 18).

Violating the texting-while-driving law can result in a $100 fine for a first offense, $250 fine for a second offense and $500 fine for a third offense.

Impaired Driving Law

In Massachusetts, what people in other states know as DUI or DWI is called operating under the influence (OUI), which covers alcohol and drugs. For someone 21 and over, the OUI limit for blood alcohol concentration is 0.08 percent; if you’re under 21, it’s 0.02 percent. 

No minimum jail sentence is required for a first-time OUI offender; for a second-time offender, it’s 30 days, and for a third-time offender, it’s 150 days.

A first-time offender can lose his or her driver’s license for up to one year; for a second-time offender, the maximum is two years, and for a third-time offender it’s eight years. Repeat offenders also are required to install an interlock device in their car. Refusing to take a breath test also may cause you to lose your license in Massachusetts.

    BOUGHT MY EUROS FOR AN UPCOMING TRIP. BEST DEAL IN TOWN, AND NO FEE! TOOK ONE DAY... EASY! AND EVERYONE I DEALT WEITH WAS PLEASANT AND COURTEOUS.

    The service that I received at this AAA office was absolutely horrific. I came in to get a very simple address change created and was met with the worst attitude I have ever received at any kind of establishment from a customer service agent. It was borderline verbal abuse. The agent's colleague whispered to me "I'm sorry" when she saw the abuse I was receiving after coming in and being completely courteous.
    Another colleague had to step in after this agent refused to service my request and tell her that she was obligated to fulfill my request. I then received a survey link from a branch manager named Pierre Laurent. I wrote back to him detailing my experience and all I received back was another customer survey link.
    Pathetic attempt to run a branch Mr. Laurent!!!!

    Moving to Boston from the midwest meant switching my tags and insurance to MA. My co-workers told me to go to his guy and I was truly impressed with the service. They got the insurance set up, got my plates for me and even got me a parking sticker. I also got coverage for my condo and ended up getting a discount on both policies. I would recommend them to everyone.

    Best insurance agency in Boston! I've had a lot of trouble with other agents- and have always switched after a year or 2. But, not these guys- they are great. Richard is one of the kindest people you will ever meet, It's a family owned and operated business and they really care about their customers. Not to mention they are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful when if comes to insurance. I feel like my money is well spent at this agency!

    I've insured with several different companies through the years, but when I found State Fund, I was both pleased and relieved. I found them to be very competitive, very knowledgable, super efficient and really polite to deal with. You can't ask for more. For me, "all my boxes were ticked" and I remain a very satisfied customer. (Shout out to Jonathan M, btw - who should be voted, "Insurance Rep of the Year"!!)

    Outstanding customer service and knowledge of products.
