What You Need To Know About Improper Backing Up

In Pennsylvania, you can be cited for improper backing up if you reverse your vehicle when it can’t be done safely or it can’t be done without interfering with other traffic.

  • When backing up you should always yield the right-of-way to moving traffic and pedestrians.
  • Drivers are not allowed to back up their cars on highway shoulders.

If you are found guilty of improper backing up, three points will be added to your driving record.

What To Do If The Police Pull You Over

  • Turn the ignition off but don’t get out of the car.
  • Don’t argue with the police officer or get angry.
  • Be polite.
