traffic violations

Postby lawskyandhutch » Wed Nov 03, 2010 5:06 pm

Duke says: "Have you ever been (i) arrested, charged, or cited for any crime or (ii) been convicted of any offense other than a minor traffic violation?"

I got a speeding ticket in Ohio for going 86 in a 65 (I think). And in Delaware I got a ticket for an improper turn at an intersection.

I plan to answer the question with a No, but send an addendum anyway.

Is this correct?

An addendum isn't necessary if you answer no.

typically on all the apps I have looked at they write in parentheses that minor traffic violations are any citation under $150

Thanks. If I have 3 minor violations does that look bad?
