    Default Is Crossing the Center Line a Misdemeanor

    Hi everyone, about five years ago I crashed my car. No one else was on the road at the time, but I slid into a ditch and some trees so the car was totaled. Someone heard the accident and called the police, and the policeman gave me a citation. I honestly can't remember exactly what it was, but it was something along the lines of 'Crossing the center line' or 'Driving on the incorrect side of the road'. Would anyone know if this a misdemeanor in Pennsylvania? I only damaged my own property, but a lot of times if you damage property then it becomes a misdemeanor so I wanted to make sure.

    We can't tell you without knowing what you were charged wtih. But 75 PA CS 3309 failing to maintain lane on marked road or whatever is most likely not a misdemeanor.

    You most likely received a careless driving ticket. This along with any motor vehicle ticket is not criminal or a misdemeanor, it is a driving infraction.
