Philadelphia Traffic Court is a summary court of limited jurisdiction and not a court of record. The Traffic Court Judiciary is made up of seven judges who are trained by the Commonwealth specifically to preside over and adjudicate citations issued within the County of Philadelphia, City of Philadelphia, as provided in the Title 75 Vehicle Code, set by the Legislature of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Traffic Court is responsible for the collection of fines resulting from the issuance of citations by the Philadelphia Police Department and other various law enforcement agencies. This court will schedule hearings for these citations and will fairly adjudicate cases according to Title 75 of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code. This court can issue warrants for unpaid citations and arrest scofflaws with one outstanding violation on record at Philadelphia Traffic Court.
Prior to the November election, candidates must reside in their district for a period of at least one year.
