Pennsylvania drivers

It is hard, really ridiculously hard to suspend a driver’s license in Pennsylvania.[2] I come here from California, and what is routine here would be reckless in my home state. I don’t know that the California Highway Patrol can really suspend licenses on the spot, not even allowing drivers to drive home, but that’s what I tell people because the difference in enforcement—at least as long as you’re an old white guy like me—is so stark.
