Many people don't understand the real consequences associated with drunk driving. They assume that a conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) will only result in a fine. This is not true. Pennsylvania has mandatory jail time for many DUI offenses. For instance, if you plead guilty to a second DUI offense, you will automatically go to jail.

Getting into one of these programs can make the difference between spending 90 days in jail versus five days in jail, or losing your driver's license for 12 months versus one month.
