PENNSYLVANIA DUI LAW
A person arrested under Title 75 of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code for driving under the influence will generally be involved in two cases. First, there is the criminal case. If found guilty, a person may face jail time, fines, mandatory alcohol education programs, and the loss of driving privileges. In addition, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDot) will try to take away a person’s the driver’s license in a separate action.
Under Pennsylvania’s DUI law, the punishment for a DUI depends upon whether it is a first, second, or third conviction, and is also based upon a person’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. Punishment under Pennsylvania’s DUI law is divided into three levels, one for people who drive with blood alcohol content from .08 to .099%, another for blood alcohol levels from .10 to .159%, with the most severe punishment for persons with a BAC level higher than .16%.
