Literally thousands of arrests are made each year for DUI – driving under the influence – in Pennsylvania. What constitutes driving under the influence in this state? What are the penalties for a conviction? Keep reading, and you’ll learn what every Pennsylvania driver needs to know.

You can be charged with driving under the influence in Pennsylvania if you are driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level at or above 0.08 percent, whether or not your ability to drive is actually impaired.

BAC level is one of the key factors considered in the sentencing of a DUI offender. “General” impairment is a BAC level from 0.08 to 0.099 percent. A “high” BAC level is 0.10 to 0.159 percent, and the “highest” is a measurement at or above 0.16 percent.
