To keep our drivers and passengers safe, Maine requires seat belts for all ages - with special rules for children.
Texting and driving is illegal in Maine; with a minimum $250 fine.
Because we care about our children, Bangor was the first city in the U.S. to ban smoking in vehicles carrying passengers under the age of 18.
Most public places, including all restaurants and bars, are also smoke free.
You should know thatâ€¦
- Legal drinking age in Maine is 21; Identification is required
- Hours of legal service are 6 am to 1 am
- Maine has a strict OUI policy that makes it a crime to operate a motor vehicle if your blood alcohol level is 0.08 or higher
New passport regulations that were effective in June 2009 now require visitors crossing the U.S./Canadian border by land to have either a valid passport card or regular passport. If traveling by air or sea, visitors must possess a valid passport - the passport card is not valid for this type of travel. Please refer to the U.S. Passport Services Bureau for more information on border crossing policies: 1-877-4USAPPT or online at travel.state.gov.
