Changes To The Driving Under The Influence (DUI) For Pennsylvania

Beginning on August 25th drivers in Pennsylvania who are convicted for the first time of drunk driving will have an option. Typically in the past a conviction or a first time DUI would require that a person lose their license to drive for one year. Under the current law there are no exceptions, no driving whatsoever is permitted.

Live music, fireworks, good food and ... DUI?

Anyone in Central Pennsylvania who's familiar with the Arts Fest is likely eagerly awaiting July. This time is when the downtown area near Penn State University turns into a stage for student entertainers, as well as venues for carnival games, food vendors and a grand parade. Many will stand in line to get an autograph from their favorite student-athletes at Beaver Stadium just before the kick-off of the annual scrimmage game. You might already have a tentative itinerary planned for the occasion.

Finals and Holidays are a Potent Combination

Final exams take place December 12-16, 2016, and then people leave for the holiday break. It's a dangerous time to be on the roads for a number of reasons. First and foremost, winter is bearing down on us, making for possibly cold and blustery trips for thousands who head home to family. But there are quite a few holiday parties that students attend either before finals to blow off some steam or after tests are over to celebrate the end of the semester (and perhaps even graduation).

Fast facts about turning 21 at Penn State

A 21st birthday can mean many things to a student, including the ability to go to the bars and legally drink, go to concerts in 21-and-over rooms and visit local breweries and tasting rooms. Students who turn 21 have the ability to go out for dinner with friends and have a glass of wine or a pint of beer.

Police hazard lights may affect DUI testing

If a person is stopped for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, one of the tests commonly given by police is called the horizontal gaze nystagmus. The flashing hazard lights on the police car or police car headlights can cause optokinetic nystagmus that the arresting officer will misdiagnose as horizontal gaze nystagmus.
