Whether it is due to unfamiliarity with a particular roadway, intoxication or anything in between, driving on the wrong side of the road will amount to a costly Traffic Ticket in Philadelphia. If you are found guilty to this charge, you'll receive 4 points on your license. This may seem like a steep penalty, but driving on the wrong side of the road is extremely dangerous. The potential for an accident via Head On Collision is significant, the results equally so.

In most cases, a person who is driving on the wrong side of the road is the result of a simple human error. Roads may not be well-marked or they may have turned onto a one-way road by mistake. This is an understandable, yet grave error. The expense to this penalty will ensure you to always be cautious to whether you are driving on the correct side of the road in attempt to discourage you from making the same mistake again.

If this is not the case and you are driving on the wrong side of the road due to Recklessness, perhaps in the form of intoxication or while racing, you can be certain that you will receive additional penalties beyond just this 4 point ticket. Driving on the wrong side of the road coupled with tickets for racing, reckless driving and/or DUI can result in very lengthy suspensions and tremendous fines.
