Safety classes required after a DUI in Philadelphia

Most people in Philadelphia understand that drinking and driving is dangerous and against the law. However, that does not stop everyone from doing it. There are many instances when a person may not think they are over the legal limit or do not feel drunk. Other times the person may only need to drive a short distance to get home and does not think it is a big deal. Whatever the reason for driving, if the police stops the driver, they may be charged with a DUI.
