  • Getting hired with a speeding ticket??

    A few days ago I received a speeding ticket on my way back from vacation. I was going 88 in a 70. This is literally the only thing on my record. Will this effect my chances with getting hired?

    I had worse on my record, but I also had many years after my dumb stuff. Good luck to you.

      Nah, you should be fine. Just don't let it become a pattern. Good luck!

        You should be alright, just make sure you bring it up to your background investigator (assuming you are in the middle of the hiring process somewhere) or disclose it to the PD you're applying for in the future. It happens but I agree with GoZombie just be careful don't make it a habit, watch your speed and OBEY THE LAW!

              You should be okay; own it, try to get court-supervision and slow it down a bit. Good luck.
