Reckless Driving Speeding(Misdemeanor) on Filing N400

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I had a Reckless Driving Speeding(Misdemeanor) in Virginia on Oct 2010 when I was driving 83 but the speeding limit is 65. I did hire a lawyer but it was still convicted a Misdemeanor.

The fine was only $90 and I paid it.

I got another speeding ticket on 2011 and it was just a minor speeding.

I got my GC after those on 2013 and there is no issue at all.

But yesterday I was pulled over by a COP again since I was driving 40mph on a 25mph street.

I am panning to apply citizenship on 2018 but now I am worrying a lot if those will cause any impact on my N400 application.

Please advise and thanks for all your information.

Reckless driving has an impact if it was during the statutory period. So in your case it shouldn't cause an issue since the incident is out of the statutory period

But please obey the rules, you don't want another reckless driving in your record

No impact on your N-400 just pay the fine or get probation for your latest offence. You are already approved for Greencard so old reckless driving would not matter but you have to disclose it on your application. 2018 is long way away the way you are going I think you should invest in good radar detector I use this https://store.valentine1.com/store/ .
