Effect of a Speeding Ticket on Green Card or Naturalization/Citizenship

Question details

I got a speeding ticket ( It is not related to DUI and no arrest, just a ticket) recently. I didn’t contest the ticket and plead guilty by paying fine of 170$, I have receipt of payment. Do I have to wait for another 5 years from the date I got a ticket (Good moral character period of 5 yrs as per USCIS) to apply for US citizenship to show good moral character?

My relationship with Rajiv's firm and the team goes back 10+ years - starting with initial application for H1 all the way through H1 renewals, green card application & subsequent approval, multiple EAD renewals and most recently application and approval of naturalization. All along the way, spanning multiple years, I have found the team of attorneys and specifically the broader team to be attentive to detail, sensitive to requirements and above all courteous and ever willing to help. I've had the pleasure of discussing directly with Rajiv on many occasions and every interaction is characterized by a deep understanding of the problem at hand and practical advise on how best to resolve. One couldnt ask for more while navigating the immigration system in the US. This is a great team and I'm forever thankful for the guidance and support they have provided. Needless to say, if you are looking for immigration support I'm positive that this firm will meet and exceed expectations.
