    I got pulled over in my personal vehicle, off the clock, and given a WARNING for 10 mph over in a 55 MPH zone, and and a broken headlight. This warning was a piece of paper with the details of the violation and a verification code and everything. Do I bother telling my sup about it? Do warnings even go on your "record". I live in Iowa.

    Alright, but I guess my biggest concern is... Do warnings even go on your record? It's not a conviction so I'm guessing they don't. I don't want to hide it and be confronted about it. But at the same time I don't want to make myself look like an idiot for bringing my Sup a paper warning.

    I just passed driver school on May 2nd and did my first full week of work this past week. Hopefully you can understand my situation and why I'm so concerned.

    It's not a ticket, I wouldn't worry about it at all. Obviously I wouldn't risk it anymore with speeding though.

    sailfish Having way too much fun.

    This pretty much sums up what I was thinking.
     
  8. you should of thought about all that before you decided you wanted to speed.
    I bet you felt like a Zebra being caught by a lion when L.E. lit you up.

    A warning will only show up on officers computer they have in cruiser, not on dmv report.

    Whenever I jump back in my personal vehicle at the end of the day I have to remind myself that I'm not in a hurry to deliver packages. Good luck with the new job, I just started driving again too.

  20. lmao @ thinking someone washed out from brown/purple(or thinking someone worked for UPS or FedEx at all) just to go to another job that's about 5x harder than UPS and FedEx combined.
