I am currently planning a round the world trip and intend to be entering the USA at LAX coming from Fiji. I was involved in an accidental traffic collision in the UK and received a caution for careless driving.
I was never arrested or convicted but I'm not sure whether I can still travel on the ESTA form or if I need to get a visa. When I emailed the embassy I was directed to a checklist to see if I was eligible to get access and it seemed like I could go with the ESTA, but it also makes a point that the tool is just a guide and not definite confirmation that the ESTA is ok.
So does anyone know, or been in this kind of situation, whether or not I need to get a visa? Or should I try calling the embassy and see what they say, even though they are more likely to encourage applying for the visa?
