I am a legal permanent resident and thinking of applying for Citizenship. I've had two traffic tickets, one for speeding in 1999. This ticket was dismissed in court. In 2013 I got a traffic camera ticket for turning right on a red light. I paid this ticket in full $160. Will these two tickets affect me from obtaining my citizenship?
This is not a criminal defense question; It is an immigration question.
If you want to increase your odds at getting a competent answer then you should repost this question and list "immigration" and not "criminal defense" as a practice area. In fact, I will do this for you....
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in properly re-directing your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
No, these two tickets should not have an impact in your naturalization, as they don't affect your good moral character.

I agree with Mr. Haber. Traffic infractions should not impact immigration, however, only an immigration attorney can give you a definite answer. You can probably get your answer by making a phone call.
