The passenger car from another state was stopped in PA Cambria co and given ticked for expired tags. The driver is NOT from PA.
Yes, plain and simple, any car can be stopped for this in PA. The tags were expired. You didn't know this?
R. Jason de Groot, Esq. We do not have an attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. The statements I make do not constitute legal advice. Any statements made by me are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business. This disclaimer is in addition to any disclaimers that this website has made. I am only licensed in Florida.
The better question is: Is there a law that allows people to take their car with expired tags out of state to avoid being cited for failing to properly register the vehicle?
I always though that there were no silly questions.
You just proved that theory wrong.
I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
Regardless of the state your car is registered in, Pennsylvania police have lawful grounds to stop a vehicle and cite the driver for driving with expired tags. Pennsylvania's vehicle code specifically prohibits driving a vehicle with expired registration.
