Another traffic ticket question
« on: October 04, 2008, 02:55:50 PM »
on BC's app it states:

"Are you currently charged with(note: we are not inquiring about arrests) any violation of law other than minor traffic violations with a fine of less than 100 dollars per violation?"

Does currently mean outstanding traffic tickets? I got one when i was like 17 for 200+ ( i don't remember the amount) and had my liscense suspended for a month ( minors in the vehicle) do i have to disclose this, and if so, do I have to find out from the DMV or somehwere else how much exactly the ticket was for?

I believe you do.  Really, you might as well, it's not a big deal
awkward follows you like a beer chasing a shot of tequila.

I'd err on the side of disclosure if I were you. A ticket like that doesn't sound like something any reasonable adcomm would hold against you (especially if you were a minor at the time) if they know up front.

If you just have to write a paragraph to CYA then it's probably worth your time to do so.
