Beer can be delivered with food in Pennsylvania

Beer can be delivered with food in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (LCB) has recently ruled that restaurants, grocery stores, pizza and sub shops, and other food and beer serving outlets to deliver up to two six packs of beers (up to 192 ounces.) The ruling comes with a few catches for both the retailer and the consumer. For instance, consumers ordering beer must pay by credit card over the phone, instead of handing money to the delivery person. Retailers must have a “transporter for hire license,” which can cost about $1,000, which depends on the type of establishment. Retailers with this license can transport up to 192 ounces (or just over two six packs of beer.)

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department announces new DUI task force

Lancaster County enforces new DUI repeat-offender program

Lancaster County enforces new DUI repeat-offender program

If a person is charged with DUI in Lancaster County, they might not feel like a lawbreaker right away with consequences not occurring until they go to court, which can be up to a year to year and a half after the incident. Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman has changed that with a new DUI repeat-offender program. Now police will deal with it right away, and suspected drunk drivers will be arrested and arraigned in court immediately. If they don’t take you to jail that day, you will be ordered not to drink and will have to wear a monitoring bracelet. “People who are on the monitoring system will have greater incentive to get their case resolved sooner because many people don’t want to have a bracelet,” Stedman said.
