DUI Charges are Serious

In Pennsylvania, there are three levels of driving under the influence (DUI.) They are:

  • General Impairment (.08-.099%)
  • High BAC (.10-.159%)
  • Highest BAC (.16% and higher)

Your possible penalty will depend on a number of factors. Those factors include your level of intoxication, whether you are in a specialized group, and any past history of driving while intoxicated.

The specialized groups under the law includes:

  • Minors
  • Commercial drivers
  • School vehicle/bus drivers
  • Caused personal injury or property damage


At the lowest levels of intoxication, with no previous DUIs, you will receive the lowest penalty. This might include a misdemeanor conviction, up to 6 months of probation, a fine, safety school and treatment. If you are convicted and get caught driving drunk again, that history will become extremely problematic for you. If you have prior DUI offenses, even at the lowest level of intoxication, you are likely to experience jail time without a strong legal defense.

At the higher levels of intoxication, your chances of spending time in prison are greatly increased. You can also expect to lose your license for a long period of time. At the highest levels of intoxication, the penalties are especially severe.

A DUI conviction will cause a substantial disruption to your life. Even with no prior convictions, the penalties can be very high.
