As a rule, if your license is suspended in any state, you should not be driving. That being said, there are times where someone might drive for a good reason, or because they don’t even know they’re suspended. But what happens when you are suspended in Pennsylvania and get caught driving in New Jersey?
While you might live in Pennsylvania and have a Pennsylvania Driver’s License, getting caught driving while suspended in New Jersey may still prove to have severe negative repercussions on your Pennsylvania driving privileges. A ticket in New Jersey can seriously delay you getting your license back in Pennsylvania.
Certain moving violations in New Jersey carry over, and get reported to PennDOT. This could severely impact your chances of getting your license back. If you get pulled over in New Jersey while you’re suspended in Pennsylvania, you need to fight the ticket. More importantly, you need a lawyer who knows New Jersey and Pennsylvania motor vehicle laws.
A lawyer who practices in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey is aware of the consequences each New Jersey violation holds in Pennsylvania. Most prosecutors in New Jersey focus only on New Jersey law, and as such fail to realize the potential repercussions a violation might have in another state. While they may offer you a plea deal in court, they do not know if the deal has any negative effects on an out of state license.
