It is natural for people in Butler who are being stopped by law enforcement to be nervous and concerned as to what will happen.

For drivers in Butler County and across Pennsylvania, being charged with driving while intoxicated can result in severe penalties, lost driving privileges and jail time. Along with DWI offenses, there can be other charges if there was an accident and people were injured or even killed. Although DWI is an irresponsible act, those who are arrested for DWI have the right to a legal defense to avoid the worse potential consequences.

What are the penalties for tampering with an ignition interlock?

In many Pennsylvania cases in which a driver has been convicted of driving under the influence, one of the penalties that will be assessed is that the person's vehicle must have an ignition interlock device installed. These devices are used to measure whether a driver has alcohol in his or her system before it will start. Also, there will be the intermittent requirement that the driver blow into the device to ensure no alcohol was consumed from the previous time the test was given. If the driver registers a certain amount of blood-alcohol content or does not take the test, the vehicle will stop automatically and emit signals as to what has occurred.

Law enforcement in Butler and the surrounding areas of Pennsylvania treat drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs very seriously. Since these acts can cause injuries and fatalities, there is great vigilance to stop and arrest drivers who exhibit signs of intoxication. In some instances, there is a motor vehicle accident and the driver was alleged to have been committing DWI offenses. Often, there are other factors that will increase the charges to greater severity. Along with that will come harsher penalties and potential consequences. After an arrest, having legal advice is crucial regardless of the circumstances.

Can I be charged with a crime if my BAC is below the legal limit?

Many Pennsylvanians will drink alcohol at special occasions such as holidays or weddings. Some even choose to drink alcohol on a more regular basis, for example, at happy hour following the workday. In either case, most Pennsylvanians will make sure they do not drive drunk. They will either not become intoxicated in the first place, or they will make alternate arrangements for getting home, such as riding with a designated driver or hailing a taxi cab. However, instances of drunk driving do occur.
