    I got my first ever cell phone ticket in my car. I plan to try and get it reduced. Will this affect my csa score and is it a possibility I get fired?

    Fired? You won't know til they know about it. And they will know about it. You are required to report all moving violations once per year. No idea if a cell ticket is a moving violation. But I would think it would be.

    And if you don't report it, it's the same as lying to them. And then there will be no doubt. You will be fired. Best to be honest about it .... IF IT'S A MOVING VIOLATION.

    I don't know about CSA. I think there are only a few items in a personal vehicle that carry over to your CSA.

    From what I understand it is worse than a moving violation, but it is not illegal in all states, so maybe it will not even count if you got it in a state that you are not licensed in..

    I don't know how it would go against you i as far as affecting your job.

    It is a non moving violation for the first offense. It is illegal in my state. So i could just not tell them until the end of the year? I’m going to try my best to get it downgraded if possible

    I don't know the answer to your question, but I can only dream they drag you through the mud like a drunk driver and suspend your license for a year.
    Tired of you morons running into me.
