I had a minor speeding ticket two years ago in Tucson AZ (50

Customer Question

I had a minor speeding ticket two years ago in Tucson AZ (50 mh in a 35 zone) while working as a trucker. I am unemployed, with a family, and am a *very good* worker, but am getting turned down even for jobs that require no driving. Is there a time limit on that offense being listed at RMV in Tucson? Is there any way, through an attorney, that I could get that one tiny offense covered up or removed?

Dear Customer,For insurance purposes, citations are reported for the past 39 months.Driving convictions remain on your record for 5 years.You can find more detailed information (as well as resources to look into your driving record) here: https://www.azdot.gov/mvd/faq/driver-services/license-informationIt is unlikely that you are being turned down from non-driving jobs due to a single speeding ticket that is 2 years old (even jobs that require driving will still look at a single citation in context - although they must clear these with their insurance carrier's policy), there may be other reasons - the most common is that there is simply a very competitive job market out there.

I have been hired at five good jobs (3 driving, two not) in the recent month (I am a very good worker, great record), and all have fired me the next day citing my driving record. This is hugely frustrating and embarrassing, and I am starving. Is there something a lawyer could do to get the small offense shielded? It's about 25 months old and you're saying it would take 39 months (or more, knowing Tucson) for it to be shielded from my employer's insurance company.

Was your traffic violation a "citation" or was it prosecuted as a "misdemeanor"?
