Have you ever heard a political election ad where a politician talks about the laws being too harsh? Have you ever heard politicians saying, “boy, these laws are really tough on everyday hardworking people so let's make the laws more lenient and reasonable?”
Politicians will never make the laws more lenient! It the exact opposite. Politicians are always looking to make headlines by making the laws more severe. They are always trying to impose much tougher penalties. That is exactly what the politicians are doing with the Pennsylvania DUI laws.
If you need any further proof that laws are politically charged, then take a look at the discrepancy between DUI laws and distracted driving laws. Both are dangerous and lead to many accidents and deaths.
For a DUI you are looking at license suspension, thousands in fines, and possible jail time. For distracted driving it's a $50 fine and no points on your license.
