The Mt. Lebanon DUI Task Force updated its Facebook page on Thursday to announce that they will be conducting roving DUI patrols over the Easter holiday weekend. Before you consider the thought of drinking and driving, we would like to remind you of what the DUI penalties are in Pennsylvania. If you have a CDL, you will lose your CDL privileges for at least 1 year on a 1st offense DUI.
Even for someone entering the ARD program on a 1st Offense DUI, you should be prepared to pay approximately $1,500 to $2,000 in court costs and fines. This is not including attorney's fees and any time you miss from work as a result of your preliminary hearing, formal arraignment, and ARD hearing dates. You're much better off paying the $30-$50 for an Uber or Lyft.
Save a life and your hard earned money. Don't drink and drive.
