NJ Traffic Tickets for Pennsylvania Residents

The following concerns Pennsylvania drivers and is from PENDOT;

Q: What violations committed in a member state will result in the suspension of my driving privilege in PA?

A: The following offenses, if committed in a member state, would be treated as though the offense had occurred in Pennsylvania and the appropriate sanction would be imposed under the provisions of our Vehicle Code:

  • Manslaughter or negligent homicide resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle (Section 3732);
  • Driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcoholic beverages or a narcotic to a degree which renders the driver incapable of safely driving a motor vehicle (Section 3731);
  • Failure to stop and render aid in the event of a motor vehicle accident resulting in the death or personal injury of another (Section 3742);
  • Any felony in the commission of which a motor vehicle is used (Crimes Code and Dangerous Drug Act Offenses).

Although reported to PennDOT, minor traffic offenses such as speeding, red light, stop sign, etc., will (NOT) appear on your driving record, unless you are a CDL holder. Points will not be assessed to your PA driving record when convicted of a point related offense in a DLC member state.
