    I was just curious as to what a UPS driver would do if she/he got a speeding ticket while off the clock, say on a weekend or going home from work. What should they do? How would they handle it? Would they lose their job? Could they continue to drive?

    Some one I know is in quite a dilemma because of this exact situation. Comments and suggestions would help! Considering the ticket is NOT that substantial and will NOT result in a loss of a license or suspension. Most likely points and a fine.

    Once you are certified as a driver(full or part time), normal traffic violations(off the clock) cannot affect your driving position. If your license is suspended, notify your supervisor immediately. Do not roll off the lot with a suspended license.

    You don't have to do anything until next year when they hand you a yearly driving record form you fill in the information.

    Stop sweating it you have nothing to worry about. However, you should watch your speed in my area speeding tickets raise your car insurance...

    Once a year we list all our moving violations. When in doubt list all violations just to be on the safe side.

    However, if you are CONVICTED of any offense that could jeopardize your employment, you DO have to notify them immediately. On the clock or off.

    Not true they are asking for the information for a reason.

    You get to many moving violations and you start to become a safety hazard and a big liability to UPS. If you got into a accident in a UPS vehicle the other person attorney would have a field day getting UPS to explain why driver who had 4 speeding tickets in the last year is still driving a UPS vehicle.

    If that is her only violation, nothing. If the violation puts her in jeopardy of losing her liscense, she has a big problem.

    She should try to get the ticket reduced and/or take a defensive driving class to get the points off her license.

    My last speeding was 5-10 years ago. 76 in a 55. $255 fine and 4 points. Paid the fine, took the class, listed the violation and the class on the drivers certification. On-car told me to slow down.

    Are you implying that this is about him? :)

    I told him the next work day, as a courtesy, but did not need to do so.

    Notify your sup. Sup will probably tell you to not worry about it and list it on that sheet at the beginning of the year but at least you told management. Definitely say something though. Had a driver fired for working on a suspended license. Claimed he didn't know. Yeah right. He ended up getting his job back though. When I got my speeding ticket it was considered a civil violation and not moving. That sheet requires you to list moving violations only. Still listed it though just to be safe.

    One thing UPS management is consistent about is they hate surprises. Tell them to cover your butt.

    Wrong. There is no need or obligation to verbally tell management anything it's a simple speeding ticket that can be disclosed on the annual moving violation form drivers fill out yearly.

    I had thought that I saw a post stating that he/she was still in training (driving class, maybe your post). Then, I thought something was edited.

    Just asking.
