At some point in nearly everyone’s driving career, they face a minor traffic infraction.

If you have been charged with a traffic violation and need personal and vigorous legal representation, you can rely on Attorney Neal E. Newman. Contact the Law Office of Neal E. Newman today to discuss your situation.

The Point System in Pennsylvania

Many traffic offenses result in having points added to your driving record. When points are added, you may face a variety of consequences and your insurance premiums may increase. If you acquire 6 or more points on your drivers’ license, you may have your license suspended. Additionally, you must take a written point examination that tests your knowledge of safe driving, departmental sanctions, and related safety issues within 30 days. Once you pass the test, you will have two points removed from your license.

Speeding Tickets

Arguably the most common traffic violation is speeding. While some may believe it is just easiest to accept the guilty plea and pay a fine, this can have long-term consequences. It may be in your best interests to fight the ticket, especially if you have points on your driving record already.  The speeding consequences are as follows:

  • 6-10 mph over the speed limit results in 2 points
  • 11-15 mph over the speed limit results in 3 points
  • 16-25 mph over the speed limit results in 4 points
  • 26-30 mph over the speed limit results in 5 points
  • 31+ mph over the speed limit results in 5 points and a departmental hearing

Mr. Newman will fight to reduce the charges or remove potential points.

Other Traffic Violations

Of course, speeding is not the only traffic infraction that drivers commit. Others include:

  • DWI/DUI
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked license
  • Hit and run
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Driving without insurance
  • Fleeing a police officer

These infractions are serious and can result in serious fines, license suspension/revocation, points, and even jail time. It is important to retain quality legal representation when faced with any serious traffic violation.
