Spotted Lanternfly Enforcement Started May 1.  You Will be Ticketed if You Travel in PA without a Permit. 

To prevent the spread of the Spotted Lanternfly and limit the damage it can do to agriculture, any truck that stops (other than for fuel or at a traffic signal) in quarantined areas of Pennsylvania and New Jersey must go through Lanternfly training and obtain a permit.  

The training and permits are FREE and online; however, as of May 1, the Pennsylvania State Police began hard enforcement with roadside stops and penalties issued for non-compliance.  

Go to https://bit.ly/2lGJQzQ for a list of the affected counties and how to obtain a permit and training.

The trucking industry offers significant career opportunities in West Virginia and across the nation. As most can understand, just about everything you possess or purchase was transported by truck. And goods shipped by truck are increasing as personal shopping trends have moved to a view-and-click online experience requiring more and more trucks to deliver the goods and products you use every day.
