Knowledgeable Philadelphia DUI Attorney

In Philadelphia, it is illegal to consume alcohol under the age of 21. If you are caught operating a vehicle while impaired and underage, you could face serious penalties. The law is stricter for individuals caught drinking and driving while under age, in fact Philadelphia has a “no-tolerance” policy. This means that if a minor is caught with more than .00 percent BAC content, they could be arrested for underage DUI.

Common Reasons for Underage DUI

The most common ages for minors to incur an underage DUI is during college, ages 18-20. It is no secret that many college campuses across the US are known as “party schools”. Underage college students attend parties with alcohol, drink and then drive home. Younger drinkers are more susceptible to drinking and driving under the influence because they may not understand how quickly they can become impaired and drink more.

Penalties For Underage DUI

Minors still face serious penalties if they are convicted of a DUI. Minors found drunk driving are committing two crimes, as they are not legally allowed to consume alcohol.

Penalties minors face for underage DUI:

  • Suspended License for up to three months
  • Fines

Minors with more than .02% BAC:

  • Jail sentence of 48 hours
  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • Required alcohol driving safety classes
