TRUCK VIOLATES PENNSYLVANIA BRIDGE WEIGHT LIMIT
Many tickets or violations can result in the loss of your driver’s license. It is best to consult with an experienced traffic law attorney before you go to court. For example, an individual charged with a first offense of DUI in Pennsylvania should ordinarily be eligible for ARD (and thereby keep the loss of driving privilege to either 30, 60 or in some cases zero days). However, there are factors that can disqualify a person from the program and lead to a suspension of one year or more. Some of these disqualifying items or issues can be cleared up before the DUI court date and make a case eligible for ARD where it would not be otherwise. Say you have the misfortune of getting a DUI case. You may have already had a minor charge of Simple Assault or some other violation pending. The DA will most likely deny ARD as you have multiple cases pending. If the other case can be favorably resolved (perhaps reduced to a summary level offense or dismissed) prior to the DUI case court date, the DA may reconsider ARD for the DUI case. Without that reconsideration and if the DUI results in a guilty plea you will lose your license for a year or more!
