Pennsylvania's Ignition Interlock Law for First Time DUI Offenders

In May 2016, Pennsylvania altered the effect a first time DUI conviction has on a person's driver's license by amending section 3805 of the Motor Vehicle Code and enacting section 1556.  These changes went into effect in August 2017.  Prior to August 2017, a person convicted of a first offense DUI with a blood alcohol content ("BAC") of .10% or higher received a 12-month license suspension. The current law now allows for an individual to avoid the hard license suspension and to operate a vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock.

A DUI conviction is no picnic for anyone. Potential penalties in Pennsylvania can range from a fine to several years in jail along with a period of license suspension, depending on the specific offense and other factors. Anyone convicted of a DUI can also expect to see insurance premiums skyrocket.
