1) if a police investigation ensues, either due to traffic stop or crash scene investigation, you as the driver have provided an abundance of witnesses to your alleged illegal activity;
2) those witnesses will be leaned on by law enforcement (especially if those witnesses are engaged in illegal activity themselves, e.g. drug use or underage drinking) to prior evidence against you; and
3) if injured or in any way placed in a detrimental situation a result of your actions, will assuredly seek restitution from you either through the criminal and/or civil judicial systems even if one or more wholly, or in part, contributed to the stop/crash.
In other words, don’t drive drunk and certainly don’t drive drink with passengers. However, if you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI in Pennsylvania, call the McKenzie Law Firm, P.C. @ 610-680-7842. We can help.
