Traffic violation on form DS-160 for H1B stamping? Have you ever been convicted or arrested for any crime or offense ?
HI I got 3 traffic citation on same day in PA state, I am a residence of MD state.
1) Speeding at 100mph in 65mph zone.
2) Driving in left lane on limited highway
3) Careless driving

I had to pay the FINE simply. Cops didn't arrest me, no fingerprint, they didn't ask me to appear to the court. But I contested the citation by reporting PLEAD NOT GUILTY on the ticket.

Cops and my lawyer received the hearing date from court. Cops and my lawyer came to an arrangement before the trial started. So during the summary trial Cops changed the citations to the below citation and then judge pleaded me guilty for these.

1) 75 § 3362 : Exceed 65 OR 70 MPH For All Vehicles By 15MPH
2) 75 § 3313 D1: Driving in Right Lane
3) 75 § 3111 §§ A: Obedience to Traffic Control Devices

I paid the fine and attended online driver improvement program. No License suspension, no arrest, no fingerprinting.

Now for the question on DS-160 there is a question: Have you ever been convicted or arrested for any crime or offense, even though subject or pardon, amnesty or other similar action?

What should I pick as answer: YES or NO
