Drunk driving deaths in Pennsylvania lead to stricter penalties

Many people die in Pittsburgh every year in drunk driving accidents. Last year, over 48,000 people were arrested for driving under the influence in Pennsylvania. Due to a recent series of fatal accidents involving drunk drivers, state legislators have decided to crack down on drunk driving statewide. One of the first major changes may be to require even first-time DUI offenders to have ignition interlock devices installed in their cars. These devices will require DUI offenders to take a breath test every time they start their car. The device will check the driver's blood alcohol concentration before allowing the car to start. Currently, Pennsylvania requires these devices after a second conviction. If this law passes, Pennsylvania will become one of 31 states to require the device after the first conviction.
