Learn more about drunk driving charges:
- Driving after imbibing (DAI) : In 2004, Pennsylvania’s drunk driving laws changed, reducing the legal limit to .08 and modifying the name of the offense to driving after imbibing (DAI). To many people, the offense is still referred to as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI).
- Pennsylvania DUI laws : Under Pennsylvania DUI laws, it is illegal to operate a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pennsylvania law provides that .08 blood alcohol content is the legal limit to drive for most drivers.
- Pennsylvania DUI penalties : Pennsylvania has three levels of DUI offenses, now known as DAI offenses, based on the amount of alcohol in your system. There are strict penalties for all DUI offenders, including jail time, fines, license suspension and more.
- Blood alcohol tests : Under Pennsylvania implied consent laws, if you refuse to submit to blood alcohol content tests (blood, breath or urine), your driver’s license will be automatically suspended for one year.
- Field sobriety tests : We know how to challenge field sobriety test results. Our investigation may lead to prosecutors dropping the criminal charge.
- Why you need a DUI defense attorney : There is a lot at stake with a drinking and driving charge. Do not risk facing these charges without a lawyer on your side.
