For the past year or so, my girlfriend has been using my spare car. She drives around quite a bit for her business and lives in a very crowded area. As a result, she accumulates lots and lots of tickets. She pays for them on time, for the most part. A couple of times she’s been towed, but she’s paid the fine and we picked up the car quickly.
All this time I thought it was not a big deal since they’re not moving violations. Recently I started thinking of background checks. They are used by most corporations before hiring new employees, and the ones performed on senior level management are usually quite thorough. That many parking tickets could imply some sort of personal issues or other negative personality traits.
Would these tickets show up on deep background checks? Is this an issue that I should be concerned about?
