Fewer teens are being arrested for DUI here in Pennsylvania

Most Pennsylvania parents spend a great deal of time worrying about their teens, especially once they are able to drive.

Does DUI blood-alcohol test refusal fee violate USSC ruling?

Most Pennsylvania residents are already aware that they face a driver's license suspension if they refuse to take a breath test during a traffic stop if a police officer suspects impairment.

New DUI law on Pennsylvania's horizon

A conviction for drunk driving can instantly change a person's life. Typically, convicted drivers have to surrender their licenses for a certain period of time, pay a fine and perhaps spend some time in jail, depending on the circumstances. DUI penalties in Pennsylvania also may include attending alcohol education or treatment sessions. However, completing this requirement, as well as fulfilling other obligations, is often complicated by the suspension of one's driver's license.
