Drunk Driving Charges Archives

Pennsylvania's SCRAM bracelet program

The Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole is one dozens of state agencies around the country to have adopted the use of electronic monitoring bracelets to combat drunk driving. Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring, or SCRAM, bracelets detect even trace amounts of alcohol in an offender's bloodstream, and they offer a number of benefits to both law enforcement and the individuals who wear them.

Repeat offender bill approved by Pennsylvania House

According to a Pennsylvania lawmaker, approximately one-third of drunk drivers who are taken into custody or convicted on a DUI charge are repeat offenders. Data from Pennsylvania Parents Against Impaired Driving shows that 40 percent of drunk driving fatalities are caused by repeat DUI offenders. A bill to increase penalties for drunk driving passed the state Senate 45-4. If it ultimately becomes law, it would make it a felony to have four or more DUI convictions within 10 years.

Diversion program could erase TV host's drunk driving charges

Viewers in Pennsylvania may be familiar with TV talk show host Steve Wilkos' brash and confrontational style with his guests that dates from his time as fellow television host Jerry Springer's head of security.

At about 3 a.m. on March 24, Pennsylvania police spotted a Honda Civic going 81 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone.

Police in Pike County say that the woman was taken into custody in Milford after a concerned motorist called 911 to report a suspected impaired driver. After being processed, the woman was deemed unfit for presentment and passed to the Department of Corrections. She was later released after posting bail of $3,100.
