Drinking is a part of most people’s St. Patrick’s Day tradition. However, there are DUI laws specific to Pennsylvania that you should be aware of, before your night of drinking. If you have been drinking, just call a cab to come get you! Be safe and have fun!
For instance… Did you know, if you refuse a chemical DUI test you could be considered automatically guilty for drinking under the influence? Pennsylvania is an Implied Consent state, meaning the sheer act of driving implies you are willing to undergo a chemical test if police suspect you are driving impaired.
Or what about the fact you can still be arrested for DUI even if you aren’t actually driving! That’s right, if the key is even in the ignition, regardless if you are drunk, passed out or just warming up the car, you could still be charged with a DUI.
The point is, don’t drink and drive. Ever.
