"Have you ever, either as an adult or a juvenile, been cited, ticketed, arrested, taken into custody, charged with, indicted, convicted or tried for, or pleaded guilty to, the commission of any felony or misdemeanor or the violation of any law, or been the subject of any juvenile delinquency or youthful offender proceeding? Traffic violations that occurred more than ten years before the filing of this application need not be reported, with the exception of alcohol or drug-related traffic violations, which must be reported in all cases irrespective of when they occurred. Do not report parking violations."
I think it was the 'cited... the violation of any law' that just suddenly made me realize that I have gotten a couple traffic tickets in the past. The most recent one was in 2018, I got an infraction that is still on my driving record. So obviously I answer 'yes' to this question and explain the situation in the addendum. I still have that ticket so it is quite easy for me to write about the situation.
However, I also remember getting a ticket in maybe 2016 for failure to complete stop at a red light. I went to traffic school and got the ticket cleared from my record. I honestly have no memory of any information beyond that, and because it was cleared I am unable to find any account of it through the DMV. Do I report this? The physical ticket is long gone by now. I have no idea what the actual charge was, nor where I should go to look for anything related to this information. My mom does not even remember this happening haha. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
