The Allentown Municipal Court has jurisdiction over all drunk driving arrests made in that town. A small compact borough, Allentown roads mostly limit speed to 25 miles per hour. This results in a relatively high number of traffic stops given the size of the town. If a police officer believes that he or she has “probable cause” that you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol after stopping your vehicle, they may place you under arrest.
