Most people feel their driving record is not a major reflection of their character, but motor vehicle reports can be just as important and as effective as running a criminal background check.
That's what Andrew Seekings has discovered after facing nearly a dozen traffic violations when he hopped on his motorcycle in a local neighborhood and travelled at speeds close to 140 MPH with cocaine in his pocket. He is charged with possession of a controlled substance, reckless driving, driving on a revoked license, driving an uninsured motor vehicle, two counts of speeding and five other traffic offenses after the high-speed drive early Thursday evening through parts of his hometown.
The cocaine charge will be a felony offense, but the other charges are considered traffic violations. Only an MVR report could reveal the dangerous character behind this man's criminal record.
