Question: How long does a written warning ticket stay on your record?

Answer: A paper warning does not go on your driving record. As for citations for speed, according to the Driver and Vehicle Services, speeding tickets generally stay on record for five years, serious speeds are 10 years.

With that being said, each year, illegal or unsafe speed is a leading contributing factor in Minnesota's fatal crashes - accounting for at least 130 deaths annually, of which 70 percent occur on rural, two-lane roads in Minnesota. Young adult motorists are the most common offenders and those at greatest risk.

If you have any questions concerning traffic related laws or issues in Minnesota send your questions to Sgt. Neil Dickenson, Minnesota State Patrol at 1131 Mesaba Ave Duluth, MN 55811. neil.dickenson@state.mn.us
