The Pennsylvania DMV defines excessive speeding as 31 miles per hour or more above the posted speed limit. Drivers facing this type of charge will be required to attend a departmental hearing. As your Pittsburgh traffic violation attorneys will explain, drivers should receive notice in the mail of the date and time of the departmental hearing.
At the hearing, the driver’s record will be reviewed and the driver may have an opportunity to explain the situation at the time of the traffic incident. At the conclusion of the hearing, the DMV will decide whether to impose (i) a 15-day suspension, and/or (ii) a special on-road driver examination. Five points will also be added to the driver’s license. Any driver who fails to attend the departmental hearing will receive a mandatory 60-day suspension of driving privileges in Pennsylvania.
Failing to Stop for a School Bus
Failure to stop for a school bus with flashing red lights incurs one of the most severe penalties imposed by the DMV. This infraction carries five points and a mandatory 60-day suspension. If you are charged with this type of traffic infraction, the knowledgeable Pittsburgh traffic violation attorneys at the Law Offices of James Crosby can help you explain the details of the situation to the DMV, as most people commit this violation unknowingly or by accident. If you are assessed a 60-day suspension, your attorney will argue for your use of an occupational limited license (OLL) which allows you to lawfully travel to and from your place of employment.
