In Pennsylvania, an individual who operates a motor vehicle with a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher is guilty of Driving Under the Influence (75 Pa.C.S. §3802 et al.), a criminal offense that carries the potential for substantial fines, penalties, license suspensions and even imprisonment. Each year, countless drivers find themselves facing such a charge. One need only open the local paper to the police blotter section to confirm it.
