Lawyer's Assistant: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

It was MD or PA

Not that I know of ...

Actually, video from third party can be used in court as evidence of your driving. The video would have to be properly authenticated, meaning the person who took the video must show up in court and testify to the date, time and location of the video and also that it is an unaltered video they took. But if the person shows up in court to testify in either MD or PA, then the video can be entered into evidence against the driver.
