Pennsylvania, Delaware County DUIs in Parking Garages and Parking Lots.
Most people are unaware that the police can arrest individuals for Driving under the Influence even when they are not driving on highways. Over the years, Delaware County Courts, Chester County Courts have considered different cases and interpreted “trafficway” and ” highway”. For example, the Pennsylvania courts have repeatedly stated that both normal parking garages and parking lots are trafficways as they are generally open to the public. See Commonwealth v. Zabierowsky, 730 A.2d 987 (Pa. Super. 1999); Commonwealth v.
Cameron, 668 A.2d 1163 (Pa. Super. 1995). As such it is important to contact an attorney who knows the inner workings of the DUI laws. At Giribaldi & Manaras, we work to protect your interest.
