Do All Traffic Tickets Stay on Your Driving Record?

Mark: Unlike a speeding ticket, a parking ticket is a different animal and that one leaves no consequences to your driver’s record. Once you pay it, there’s not going to be a permanent record of the infraction.

It’s not reported to the DMV. There are no long-term consequences, only the short-term consequence of having to pay a small fine.

Interviewer: You just brought up a good point. When you are being pulled over, the police can pull up your total traffic ticket history in their computer before they walk up to your car?

Mark: Yes.

Interviewer: Is that literally what they do? What happens as you’re sitting there for the minute or two before they walk up?
