The Pennsylvania DUI statute, 75 Pa.C.S. Section 3802, defines driving under the influence of alcohol as driving, operating, or being in actual physical control of the movement of a vehicle after imbiding a sufficient amount of alcohol such that the individual is rendered incapable of safely driving, operating, or being in actual physical control of a vehicle. This is called "general impairment."
Being convicted of a Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Controlled Substances charge in Pennsylvania comes with many negative consequences: a criminal record, hefty fines and court costs, and a suspension of your operating privileges. In May 2016, Governor Tom Wolf signed a bill that will provide a little bit more fleixibility for those individuals convicted of a 1st DUI offense.
