“Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the judge determines that the sole reason that an individual was convicted of a violation of §2701(b) of this Title was because the individual’s driver’s license was suspended, revoked or denied for a failure to pay a fine for a traffic offense which is eligible for voluntary assessment (whether or not the voluntary assessment procedure was offered or used), then that violation of 2701(b) may not be considered to establish habitual offense status pursuant to §2802(1)(d) of this Title.
