Tougher DUI laws coming

The Pennsylvania legislature has passed a bill that makes things tougher on those arrested for driving while under the influence.

Senate Bill 961 was presented to Governor Wolf on October 18 after concurrence in the Senate by a 45-4 vote a day earlier. In addition, the bill passed in the House 184-1 just prior to the Senate’s final action.

Once signed by the governor, those with a third conviction of driving with at least twice the legal limit of alcohol in their system will face tougher penalties as well as those with a fourth DUI conviction.

More severe penalties include longer mandatory jail time.
