The Highway Safety Law Awareness Week ran between February 17-23. The program is facilitated by the Pennsylvania State Police and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). PennDOT is a critical part of safety and policies related to highways, transportation, railroads, airports, and others.

Both institutions select a list of specific road safety laws that they would like to highlight annually. So, no matter what type of vehicle you drive, it’s an opportunity for you to review and learn more about driver safety laws that might not be well known to the public.

The officials want you to remember that these laws remain in place yearly. “Safety is a CORE Value in New Penn!” Let’s look at several highway safety laws that were featured this year.

Driver Earphones and Headphone Use

Drivers are prohibited from wearing earphones or headphones. This doesn’t apply to the use of hearing aid-type appliances that are put on one ear. Having both ears blocked from sound creates a perilous situation because you’ve reduced awareness of your surroundings.

Speeding

Penn laws on speed restrictions require you to drive at a prudent and reasonable speed for the current conditions. It would be best if you drove at an appropriate and safe speed when:

  • Crossing or approaching intersections,
  • While approaching a hill crest,
  • When special hazards exist concerning weather, pedestrians, other traffic, or highway conditions,
  • At rail grade crossings, and
  • When approaching or going around a curve.

This law is often called the “assured clear distance” law because it requires you to drive at a speed at which you can stop with an “assured clear distance.” You might be ticketed for rear-ending another motorist as you violated this law by not stopping within the following distance they allowed.

Impaired Driving

You’re prohibited by Penn laws from driving while impaired by alcohol and drugs. Fines for driving while impaired depend on your level of impairment and prior offenses and might include:

  • Up to about $10000 or you risk
  • Up to five years jail term,
  • A year of ignition interlock,
  • Eighteen months license suspension, and more.

Also, Penn’s Texting-While-Driving Ban prohibits you from using Interactive Wireless Communication Devices (IWCD) to read, send, or write text-based communication while the vehicle is in motion.

Wearing Seat Belts

Pen laws require passengers younger than 18 to buckle up as well as front-seat passengers and drivers. Kids under the age of two SHOULD be secured in a rear-facing car seat.

Moreover, kids under the age of four should also be restrained in approved child safety seats. It would help if your kids rode in booster seats until they are eight years old.

Clear Visibility While Driving

REMEMBER: Remove snow and ice from mirrors, windows, roof, hood, and all vehicle lights before you drive and as often as needed. Please, note that ice and snow are the “big two” when it comes to elements that damage your car’s paint.

It will help if you contact an automobile body shop for a paintwork repair for scuffs, scratches, and dents.

Penn’s Young Driver Law

Pen licenses a young driver through a three-staged program that reflects the driver’s gradual progression in experience, skill, and decision-making ability. The law has effectively reduced fatalities and crashes for 16- and 17-year-old drivers.
