    Speeding Tickets

    I have 4 speeding tickets in the last 2.5 years, all under 15 mph over. Lyft passed my driving record. Will Uber do the same? I can't seem to find any clarifying information. Some forums say no more than 3 in 36 months, some say as long as they aren't over 20 mph you are fine. Please advice.
