Living in State College can be a lot of fun, especially if you are on point for earning your college degree and taking steps toward achieving your life goals. Whether you're in the beginning stages of your college journey or nearing graduation, you may be building memories (both academic and social) that you'll cherish for years to come.
If you have been pulled over to the side of the road by a law enforcement officer, it may be because you were driving dangerously and that you were suspected of drunk driving. If this is the case, the law enforcement officer will speak with you to assess your state and may ask you perform certain activities such as walking along a straight line. If, as a result of this assessment, the officer still has reason to believe that you are driving under the influence of alcohol, they will ask you to perform a Breathalyzer test by blowing into a tube.
When a person is involved in a traffic violation, it can often mean that he or she receives an infraction. This means that they were charged with a nondangerous, and therefore, not serious offense that will likely result in a fine.
Just about everyone gets nervous when a patrol car turns on its lights and sirens behind them. If this was your first encounter with police, you were more than likely anxious. When the officer approached your vehicle, you may have wondered whether the wine, beer or other spirits that you had before getting behind the wheel would come back to haunt you.
