DRIVING WITHOUT LIGHTS TO AVOID IDENTIFICATION OR ARREST (SECTION 3734)
You can be charged with Driving Without Lights to Avoid ID or Arrest under Section 3734 of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code if you turn off your lights while being followed by members of law enforcement to avoid being caught for a criminal or traffic offense.
Upon conviction for this offense, you will lose your license for 6-months while facing a $200 fine and court costs.
DO I NEED AN ATTORNEY?
If you do not want to lose your driver's license for 6 months and see your car insurance premiums rise, then you should immediately retain a qualified traffic ticket defense lawyer to assist with representation. As a former Assistant District Attorney who prosecuted Motor Vehicle Code violations, Attorney David Zuckerman is a professional who you want on your side.
When fighting a driving without lights ticket, you must remember that the officer who cited you is a trained, professional witness with many hours of experience testifying in courtrooms. Without a firm understanding of the rules of evidence and case law regarding these prosecutions, along with prior experience cross examining police officers, you take a substantial risk when you represent yourself.
