A Pennsylvania DUI can result in a number of serious penalties, from fines to a license suspension and more. If the prosecutor’s case against you is weak, however, you may have the option of having your DUI charge reduced to an exhibition of speed, which is a summary offense. This can be accomplished through a negotiated plea bargain by your DUI defense attorney.

Exhibition of Speed as a Summary Offense
Only in certain circumstances is it possible to get a DUI reduced to an exhibition of speed summary offense. This may be accomplished only if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) did not exceed the legal limit of .08 percent. By bringing your case to an experienced DUI defense attorney like Mr. Kellis, you can have the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest analyzed to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecutor’s evidence and position. Should it be determined that the case against you is lacking, your attorney can move forward with negotiations for reduced charges.
PA Speeding Penalties
Getting your DUI case reduced to a speeding violation will mean that you will avoid all of the serious DUI penalties. An exhibition of speed violation typically only involves a fine which can range from $50 to $500 depending on your location in the state. Other penalties which may be incurred can include probation, jail time, or a license suspension but these penalties generally only occur in circumstances where the driver seriously endangered the safety of others.
Speeding laws in Pennsylvania are covered under various sections of Title 75 which list the penalties for exceeding posted speed limits.
