    Ok guys, here's the deal. I'm part time air shuttle driver. The other day I got a ticket for 71 in a 55 in my pickup. My lawyer said that he knows the state trooper very well and he can get it reduced to defective equipment. It's a non moving violation and zero points on my record. Here's the question. Do I need to report the ticket to my sup.? Do I wait till after the conviction so I can just tell him that I got a non moving violation? Am I required to tell him anything since it's a non moving or does it even make a difference? What would you do in this situation? Thanks for the help in advance.

    Why would you hire a lawyer just for a speeding ticket?

    If it were me I would tell my sup about the ticket and tell him that you are in the process of getting it reduced. Mgt does not like surprises.

    You need to remember to list this on the drivers license certification form that we have to fill out in January each year. We had a driver in my center who decided to leave off a few non-moving violations that he received. They just happened to pull his license abstract and discovered the missing items. I'm not sure what, if anything, will come out of this.

    Until you are found responsible for a ticket (civil violation) you do not have a conviction.

    Here we can request a reduction in writing without the expense of a lawyer.

    that's after the fact though.. if you fight it with an attorney, it'll never be on your record in the first place

    report everything. If you don't and they find out later you can be fired.

    Ok, I will prob just fight to get it dropped or lowered to a non moving and just let it be. Right choice? Side note: the lawyer is a friend of mine and doing it for free. So it's not like I'm blowing a lot of money or anything...thanks guys.

    Yes this is true, but i would wait until i was asked or had to fill out DCF....Why feed the belly of the beast ahead of time?

    At this point it is still a moving violation and, if it were me, I would give my mgt team a heads up just to be on the safe side.

    Yes right now it is , but that is not what you said above

    You said a driver got in trouble for not telling them about non moving violations

    Here you can go to a class once a year, and get the points and ticket permanently off your record.
