According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 30 people die every day in the United States as a result of a collision with an impaired driver. In 2013, 381 people from Pennsylvania were killed in alcohol-related crashes, and 30 traffic accidents related to alcohol occurred each day in the state.
Pennsylvania Takes DUI Charges Seriously
Because keeping the state’s roads safe is a top priority, Pennsylvania takes DUI and collisions related to driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol very seriously, as evidenced by sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols, and the stiff penalties that offenders typically face. A drunk driver may be responsible for both criminal and civil liabilities connected with an accident, particularly when someone is injured or killed.
