Points on License for NON- DUI or driving related Possession Conviction?
I received a letter from the PA Dept of Transportation after serving a six month driving suspension for misdemeanor possession of controlled substance (marij.) stating that, " upon restoration, PA law requires PennDOT to assign 5 points to your driving record (Section 1545 of the PA vehicle code). Your driving record now shows a total of 5 points." I'm just confused as to why points were added to my driving record when neither a car or driving were even remotely involved in my criminal case and from what I have skimmed of Section 1545 of the PA vehicle code it relates to Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Thank you for your help!
Unfortunately, PENNDOT has wide latitude to revoke, suspend, or add points to your license as long as the law allows it....
