Addendum for traffic offenses

Postby chuckles22 » Mon Dec 24, 2012 4:45 pm

Hello all!

I have a question regarding the character and fitness addendum for my traffic offenses. I have a few tickets, nothing major, but several are 4 or 5 years old and I can't remember all of the details (including the actual speed for one). So my question for you is, how much detail is generally included or required for minor traffic offenses, like a speeding ticket? Is there a good model to use when writing an addendum for simple offenses such as this? Thanks!

Some schools definitely require an addendum even for minor traffic violations, especially if you received any in states where minor violations are Class C misdemeanors.

You will be fine if you disclose the month, year, and general nature of each violation. Exact details aren't necessary.
