In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, many consequences of traffic citations are based upon a points system. For example, driving under the influence may result in a driver’s license suspension, but a combination of different minor violations such as running a stop sign or speeding can also result in a driver’s license suspension depending upon the amount of points that have accumulated.
The act of simply paying the fine associated with a traffic ticket is like an admission of guilt for that incident and the points are applied to your driver’s license. The type of traffic offense will determine exactly how many points that may receive by deciding to just pay off the citation. Usually, the act of being found guilty of just one traffic ticket can result in the application of 2-5 points to your driver’s license. And, six points or more may result in a driver’s license suspension or a requirement to attend traffic school.
Many individuals across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania depend upon the ability to drive to work. Whether it’s making simple deliveries around town or using commercial vehicles to travel throughout the state, accumulating a certain number of points from traffic violations can result in losing your employment should your driver’s license be suspended or revoked.
