Man attempts to grab trooper's firearm after DUI arrest

Getting arrested for drunk driving can be a frustrating situation due to the consequences associated with this crime. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, upon a first offense, those arrested for drunk driving may be required to pay a $300 fine, participate in a year of probation and attend alcohol safety school. For every additional DUI arrest, the penalties increase. For example, after two or more DUIs, drunk drivers may be charged with anywhere from 10 days to two years in prison, the requirement to pay a fine worth several thousand dollars and may have to use an ignition interlock device in their vehicle for a year.

When Pennsylvanians are arrested for drunk driving, the news is often made public and it quickly finds it way to friends, family members, and even acquaintances. For this reason, it is critically important for law enforcement to ensure that anyone that they arrest for drunk driving is above the legal limit.

When Pennsylvanians consume an excessive amount of alcohol, their behavior may become uncontrollable and unpredictable. Unfortunately, when they have reached this point, they may be unable to make wise decisions when it comes to drinking and driving.

During their teenage years, many Pennsylvanians make decisions that they later regret, such as following ill-advised fashion trends and sneaking out of their parents’ house.

However, in some cases the mistakes are more serious, and without intervention, they may lead the teenager into a lifetime of criminal activity.

Even though Pennsylvania drivers are ultimately responsible for ensuring that they’re able to drive before they get behind the wheel, sometimes other people play a role in drunk driving accidents. In some cases, people who ignore certain warning signs may also be penalized for their decisions.

Pennsylvania not as tough as other states on drunk driving

With drunk driving, there are a lot of factors to take into consideration. Not only does the amount of intoxication recorded on a breathing machine or blood test matter, but if you have been convicted of DUI previously it will also have an impact on your case. However, not every state is the same. For example, if you live in Montgomery, you might be surprised to hear about a recent comparison of the drunk driving laws in Pennsylvania with other states.
