PennDOT, Area DUI Task Forces Remind Motorists of Costs of DUI
With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, PennDOT is urging motorists to avoid driving under the influence (DUI) and advising that area police will be on the lookout for impaired drivers.
With federal funds distributed through PennDOT, regional State Police and DUI Task Forces in Blair, Cambria and Huntingdon counties will be hold DUI checkpoints and roving patrols throughout the holiday weekend.
According to preliminary PennDOT data, last year on St. Patrick’s Day in Pennsylvania there were 61 alcohol-related crashes resulting in three fatalities.
PennDOT, state and local police urge partygoers to celebrate responsibly or face fines that can range from $300 to $10,000 depending on blood alcohol content and the number of offenses, and could lead to jail time.
To ensure a safe, ticket-free St. Patrick’s Day, PennDOT reminds motorists to plan a sober ride home before festivities begin. Be sure to contact local law enforcement to report impaired drivers, and ensure others get home safely by taking away their keys and helping to make other arrangements home if they’re impaired.
