Driving on a DUI / Suspended License
If you are caught Driving Under Suspension (DUS) while your license is suspended or revoked due to a prior DUI offense, the penalties can be more serious as the DUI itself! You will be facing a mandatory jail sentence of 60 days and a fine of up to $500.00 on a first offense as well as an additional license suspension of 1 year. These penalties are enhanced if you have virtually any alcohol in your system.
If you are caught driving under suspension for a non-DUI related suspension, you will still face stiff penalties. These include both a fine and an additional license suspension of at least 1 year. However, there is no jail sentence associated with this offense.
Even if you believe your driving privileges have been restored, you can find yourself facing DUS charges and the prospect of serving serious jail time. An attorney at AAAL – Allegheny Attorneys At Law, P.C. familiar with both Pennsylvania DUI laws and the traffic code can and will fight any type of DUS charges on your behalf.
