traffic violation

Postby sharpshooter » Thu Aug 05, 2010 10:25 am

twice i have been ticketed for out of date registration on my vehicle which was easily resolved by simply renewing it. however, i know of the c and f parts of the apps it often tells you to omit parking and non-moving violations. would out of date registration be considered a non-moving violation? thanks

Were you moving while you failed to renew your registration? I think this is the crucial point on which this question hangs.

Yes you must include that information on your apps. You're screwed. My .02

Why would OP be "screwed" by this?? Just disclose and move on.

OP: I think the parking/non-moving exception applies to "traffic" violations, not violations related to registration. For example, if you were cited for driving without a license, you'd have to disclose it. I think this situation is similar.

Note: I'm not a licensed attorney and this is just my opinion, not legal advice.

I assumed that was sarcasm because this is such a ridiculous question. I wouldn't disclose, honestly. If they come back and say you should have, you can just say you thought it fell into non-moving violations.

But most of all, read the fucking actual instructions and/or call the admissions office instead of asking random people on the internet.
