Police have been cracking down on Driving Under the Influence drivers.  The Pennsylvania DUI Association is constantly reminding drivers that they can also be arrested for unsafely operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs, even prescribed or over-the-counter medications.

When most people think about Drink Under the Influence, drinking and driving immediately comes to mind.  Thus, people only consider ways to regulate alcohol consumption.  However, people may fail to consider risks associated with drugged driving.

Use of illegal drugs could lead to DUI charges.  Even if drugs were not used immediately prior o a traffic stop, their presence could unnecessarily result in a charge of driving under the influence of drugs.  Contact the Marinaro Law Firm for permissible drug levels in the blood stream.

If you have used illegal drugs or you are taking lawfully prescribed medication, you need to be aware of the risks associated with driving, especially at the time where police departments are aggressively and proactively targeting impaired drivers.  If you are taking prescribed medication and uncertain of the risks associated with driving or mixing the meds with alcohol, ask your doctor or physician.  

Don’t compound one mistake with another.  If charged, get help from an Experienced Professional at the Marinaro Law Firm.  (717) 397-7055
