A quick perusal of caselookup reveals four traffic brushes with the law, 2014 Speeding (photo); 2016 speeding (and failure to produce insurance; which was dismissed, usually because there was insurance but no card on hand); 3/2017 insurance (dismissed), and 5/2017 speeding . The two non-photo speeding ones refer to speeding and FTC (failure to control to avoid a collision); I’m not sure if that means they were “just” speeding tickets, or involved a collision(?)
