Expanding on what Lt-AWACS said, municipalities main concern is the money, not putting points on your license for a ticket. Always plead not guilty and try to strike a deal with the cop first, then the judge, before the hearing. If you ask nicely and the magistrate is not too big of an asshole he will bow to your request. I speak from experience.
Also many jobs perform the full battery of background checks on you, for example, the Pennsylvania State Police check your credit, as do most other police departments and some other less involving jobs.
If you don't have an excess of violations people will still consider hiring you, unless it involves driving, most big rig companies and bus companies want you to maintain a clean driving record before and throughout employment.
Just as long as you aren't the woman with 17 DUI's you will be cool for the most part, just be careful, everything about you these days forms a paper trail behind you that you can trip over later on in life.
