Old Traffic citations without payment receipts need to submit in Citizenship application?
1. Speeding tickets in 2017 - Receipt
2. Speeding ticket in 2013 - Receipt
3. Failing to Stop at Stop sign in 2012 - Receipt
4. Lane change ticket in 2005 - No Receipt - California DMV Record clean
5. Failing to Stop at Stop sign in 2002 - No Receipt
6. Hit another car from backside in early days in 2001 - No Receipt
Shall I mention all those 6 tickets in the application?
In case I mentioned all those 6 tickets, what if IO asks about all those 6 receipts?
Shall I mention only the latest 3 tickets in the application?
What if IO full other records in case I mention only latest 3 tickets? Doesn't it count as Fraud?
Please let me know

This is really an immigration issue so I changed the practice area.
You have to provide your entire record, including all traffic offenses, for immigration purposes. You also will have to provide any arrests or convictions you had expunged or sealed.
Read your N400 questions closely: you have to answer each question correctly and honestly. Besides, minor traffic citations do not require dispositions.
I suggest not to do any mistakes on your submission and consult with an experienced immigration attorney. You may spend some money retaining a counsel, but at least, you will not wreck your valuable future in the United States.
