Many Americans throughout the county, including students in and around the State College, Pennsylvania, area, like to go out and have a good time and have a couple drinks every now and then. It’s not uncommon, however, for a drink or two to turn into three or four, or even more.

Alcohol lessens a person’s ability to think and act soundly, and also affects a person’s physical abilities. This is not a good combination, especially when someone who has a had a few drinks gets out on the road. When you get behind the wheel while intoxicated, you put not only yourself at risk, but everyone else out on or near the roads as well.

This is why there are very strict laws in place to dissuade and try to prevent people from getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or doing drugs. If you are caught drinking and driving and found guilty, you will face some very serious and expensive penalties. In addition to losing your license, you may face time in prison and may have to have an ignition interlock device installed on your vehicle, at your expense. You will also have additional insurance surcharges applied. Facing a DUI charge is not fun, but we are here to help.
