Consequences of a Traffic Ticket

If you accept a traffic ticket or are found guilty by the court after you request a hearing to contest the ticket, you will most likely have to pay a fine. Fines for traffic tickets in Pennsylvania range from $25 to $200, depending on the violation and other factors, such as how much you were speeding for speeding violations. Serious offenses, such as driving with a suspended/revoked license, may also include jail time as part of the sentence.

In addition to fines, most traffic violations also result in the imposition of “points” on the driver’s record. Under the Pennsylvania points system, the number of points imposed depends on the severity of the violation, ranging from two points for minor violations to five points for the most serious violations. Drivers who accumulate a certain number of points may face suspension of their driver’s license. Drivers who accumulate at least six points for the first time must pass a written driving examination, which results in the removal of two points from one’s record. Accumulating six or more points again results in a 15-day license suspension or the requirement to attend driver improvement school or pass a road examination. A third accumulation of six or more points may result in the imposition of a 30-day license suspension. Finally, accumulating 11 or more points results in automatic suspension, with the length of suspension depending on the number of points a person has and how many prior suspensions they’ve had.

Certain traffic violations, such as excessive speeding or failing to stop for a stopped school bus, may also result in an automatic driver’s license suspension.
