Never been asked for mine. Then again with airlines nowadays you never know.

I got one on the way to an interview once. Then I asked the cop if I could answer the phone as the interviewer was calling me to tell me he was running late. Good times...

-the probability of 'entitlement' being mentioned, approaches 1
-one will be accused of using bad airmanship

Heck yes, your flying career is toast. I'd take the tickets and show them within seconds in the interview, then beg for forgiveness. (come on man, get real)

Maybe if you have to drive company vehicles as part of your job and they want a driver's abstract or something... but I doubt it... don't lie about it if ever asked.

That, lying, is something you are more likely to not get hired for - or fired for...

Just 2? Ive got plenty over the span of 20 years+. When I was 17 I got my first one, 150 in 100.. back then they never had the stunt driving rule, just had to go to court and let the judge decide. Anyway, Im not saying you should speed recklessly, but going 80 in a 70 is not speeding in my opinion. Sometimes they just have to get rid of those tickets. Hopefully no employer ever asks, but if they do just tell them yeah. Im sure the guy interviewing you has got a speeding ticket at least once before. So don't worry.

Don't be silly. Going faster than the speed limit is the very definition of speeding. Your opinion is irrelevant.
