Q: Is ticket under title 75 section 6110 subsection A worth contesting?
Hi, I got a traffic citation under title 75 section 6110 subsection A on PA turnpike. I want to know if this a moving violation or carry any points? Will this affect my future insurance coverage? If yes, is it worth contesting it in the court?
A: When you are issued a traffic citation the PD can arrest you and take you before a magistrate for arraignment; or you can sign a "promise to appear" and pledge to willingly go to court. Failing to appear on that promise is often a more serious offense than the traffic ticket, and will result in your license being suspended and additional fines; or possibly, a warrant issued for your arrest. This case arises in the area of traffic tickets. You need to discuss with an attorney in your jurisdiction that specializes in this kind of law. Thank you for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.
