So I've had my share of traffic tickets (Red Light Camera Violation [which I got when my car wasn't even starting...WTF?!], Unsafe Speed [30 in a 45 mph zone...again...WTF?!?!, failure to yield, and 1 accident) I'm scared that this will hurt me in the long run of obtaining a career in law enforcement. the majority of these incidents happened 19-20 years old, and im 21 now, but its not like i am necessarily a bad or irresponsible driver, actually i havent paid those tickets yet due to the fact that im constantly broke without a job. and im also going to see a judge to see wat i can do about the pending 'failure to yield' ticket and the other two.
i personally know that this is the field i want to pursue, but i feel that the dream is pretty far away due to my driving record and i would like someone to give me some no BS answers and/or suggestions.
also...i am studying for my corrections officer exam, cause i feel that this would be the right place to start. id work my way up to county, and then state, while taking my degree in criminal justice, and then id be looking into accomplishing my dream of joining California Highway Patrol in due time.
any suggestions/comments/approvals/dis-approvals would be helpful
