My boyfriend and I have both our names on his car. My name is the first one on the loan due to better credit when we purchased the car and he is the 2nd one. He has a history of dui’s. We are on the same insurance policy. Can I be responsible if he causes an accident while under the influence.

The answer I have given you in good faith is absolutely free of charge. You're welcome.
