What is the legal alcohol limit?
In Pennsylvania, the legal alcohol limit for DUI is 0.08% of alcohol. But since 2004, you can also get a DUI for having prescription narcotics in your system as well as illegal narcotics such as marijuana. That is significant. Because, in Pennsylvania, you can get charged and convicted of a DUI from marijuana smoking that you may have done days or weeks ago.
A DUI is a very serious offense. It is one that can result in mandatory jail time, mandatory loss of license, and a permanent record. A DU can also impact your job. And it can impact your family. If you’re facing a DUI or if you’ve been stopped for a DUI, it’s important to contact an attorney immediately. There are important details that would be overwhelming to deal with by yourself. And an attorney can help walk you through the process and be your advocate.
