PA police will be using Airplanes against speeders…

May 27, 2010

To help increase safety of all persons on the road and reduce the number of injuries from Pennsylvania car accidents and accident fatalities, PennDOT and the Pennsylvania State Police will be rolling out their Air, Land, and Speed campaign. This campaign will work hand-in-hand with the Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement program. This dual approach to roadway safety focuses on reminding motorists to drive at safe speeds and to buckle up, two very important factors which aid in avoiding car accident injuries and even death.

The Air, Land, and Speed campaign utilizes aircraft to register motorists' speed. The aerial police then instruct state troopers via radio to make the traffic stop to issue Pennsylvania speeding tickets. Local municipalities will also have police deployed in full force along targeted roadways to further the PA speeding ticket enforcement effort. People who drive carelessly or at excessive speeds often do so because they are driving under the influence (DUI) in Pennsylvania. Car accidents caused by those who drive drunk are often very serious and can cause life altering personal injuries to those unfortunate enough to be a victim of a Pennsylvania drunk driving car accident.

Keep an eye to the skies this weekend, you just may be being watched! If you are charged with a speeding ticket in Bucks County, PA, hire an experienced traffic violation lawyer such as Michael L. Saile, Jr., Esq. Many times we can reduce or eliminate your PennDot driving points.


Michael L. Saile, Jr. is quoted in major Bucks County newspaper DUI article

May 17, 2010

This past Sunday, the Bucks County Courier Times ran a series of front section, and even a front page articles written by Ben Finley about DUI arrests in Bucks County, PA. The first (front page) article titled "Drivers take to the roads drunk" stated that DUI is the most charged crime in Bucks County and that Pennsylvania had a record number of DUI arrests last year.

One of Michael L. Saile Jr.'s DUI clients, "a 22-year old", was interviewed by reporter, Ben Finley, about his experience with the DUI process in Bucks County, PA. Mr. Saile was quoted several times along with Assistant District Attorney, Robert Salzer, Newtown Township police officer, Tim Keegan, and toxicologist, Gary Lange. You can link to the article here: Bucks County Courier Times.

In the second article titled "Tips for staying sober behind the wheel", Mr. Saile gives some tips on how to drink responsibility without reaching the "under the influence" point. It is very hard to predict or measure a person's blood alcohol content (BAC). Even the most sophisticated testing process yield error.

Some of Mr. Saile's tips include: eating a full meal before drinking alcohol, counting your alcoholic drinks, keeping track of the amount of alcohol the bartender is pouring in your drinks, alternating water between alcohol drinks, and have no shots or martinis if you are driving. You can find the second article here: Bucks County Courier Times.

Can you get into the Bucks County DUI-ARD program if you have been involved in a Bucks County Car Accident?

May 11, 2010

There are a few state-wide exclusions for the Pennsylvania first offender's program for DUI (otherwise known as the ARD Program). Being involved in a Pennsylvania car accident is not one of the state-wide exclusions.

Pennsylvania law allows each county's district attorney's office to run their county's DUI ARD Program. The Bucks County District attorney's ARD program is known to be one of the tougher Pennsylvania ARD-DUI Programs to gain admittance. Bucks County has its own ARD Program rules for DUI cases.

Bucks County had a longstanding policy not to allow DUI defendants admittance to its ARD-DUI Program if the DUI defendant was involved in a Bucks County car accident. Even if the Bucks County DUI defendant did not cause the car accident, the DUI defendant would be prevented from the ARD Program.

In the past few years, we at Saile & Saile LLP have been successful in obtaining admittance of our clients into the Bucks County ARD Program when they have been involved in a car accident in Bucks County. These clients have been individuals who have been arrested for DUI in Bucks County and who have not caused the Bucks County car accident.

Recently there has been a new District Attorney elected in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The new Bucks County D.A. has made a few improvements to Bucks County criminal procedure. Perhaps the new Bucks County D.A. will allow more Bucks County DUI defendants into the Bucks County DUI-ARD program?

There are many Bucks County car accidents caused by people arrested for DUI that involve no personal injuries. These accidents often involve only minimal property damage. These Bucks County DUI defendants should be admitted to the Bucks County DUI-ARD program. What do you think?

If you have been involved in a Bucks County DUI, do not wait and jeopardize your rights, contact us for an aggressive and experienced DUI defense and guidance.
