Can someone critique my Disclosure for two tickets I received?
The purpose of this Addendum is to disclose two speeding tickets I received. The first, a civil infraction, was received in 2011. The second, a criminal infraction, in 2012.
On November 17, 2011 I received a speeding ticket in [Town], Florida. I was traveling 48 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone. I pleaded no contest by mail, and paid the $206.00 fine. Additionally, in lieu of receiving points on my license, I elected to take a four hour driver improvement course. I completed the course on December 20th, 2011.
On December 2, 2012, while driving on Interstate 10 in [County] returning to [University], I received a ticket traveling 102 miles per hour in a 70 mile per hour zone. In the state of Florida a ticket for traveling in excess of 30 miles per hour over the posted limit is a criminal infraction and requires adjudication by a judge in court. On January 13, 2013 I pleaded no contest to the ticket in [County]. Adjudication was withheld pending payment of a $400.00 dollar fine and completion of a 12 hour driver improvement course by April 18 2013. I paid the fine January 13, 2013 and completed the driver improvement course April 03, 2013
I accept full responsibility for my actions in these events. The events following my second ticket, including the court proceedings and the driver improvement course helped me realize the gravity and dangers of my actions in both cases. I realize now just how much danger traveling at the speeds I was traveling poses, and have avoided all speeding since. I also matured greatly through the events following my second ticket and have been much more cognizant of the ramifications of my actions since, which has a had a significant benefit on all decision making in my life.
I have had no other incidents with law enforcement in my lifetime.
