The vehicle code is not to be confused with the driver’s handbook in PA, which offers more focus on drivers and the rules that should be followed as drivers take the wheel. The vehicle code instead offers a full description of the various laws that PennDOT has under way, as well as the government laws imposed on drivers and vehicles.

If you are appearing in court for a traffic case, or any related case to your vehicle or driving, however, you will find that the vehicle code serves as an excellent resource, which your traffic lawyer will utilize to help represent your case. If you want a better understanding of the proceedings, this is the publication to take a look at before you even step foot in the court house.
