DUIs are serious offenses. The consequences have the potential to follow a convicted person for the rest of his or her life. At the beginning of 2019, Pennsylvania legislators passed new laws that will make the consequences even more severe for DUI offenders.
All of these new laws come courtesy of Senate Bill 961. Pennsylvania has thousands of DUI cases every year, and the hope of the new laws is to further deter more people from getting behind the wheel while intoxicated. The laws have become stricter in recent months, so anyone thinking of driving while drunk needs to think twice.
