    tire citations

    A vehicle that I own was involved in an accident in Pennsylvania (the vehicle is titled in PA also). Can both the operator and the vehicles owner receive identical citations for tires that don't meet code (bald)?

    I suppose it is possible although I don't see why or how the officer would issue a ticket to the owner of the vehicle, especially if he is not present in the car. I cannot definitively answer your question without reading through the specific statute for this violation.

    The officer can write the ticket, but the judge will be the one who finds both parties guilty. If both were written, you should get legal help and both fight the citation.

    It seems to me that the driver would get the ticket. Of course they can take it to traffic court and say it is not their car but yours. I agree about the judge deciding this matter.
