So I went to a bnsf interview....went though all the steps and interviewed. The next day, I got a conditional letter of employment. When I filled the app out, it asked me for my driving record so I called my insurance agent and had him give me everything that was on my record without thinking about it( which was one speeding ticket back in 2011).While at work today, I was thinking about it and it dawned on me that it was asking for 7 years of driving records. I forgot to put on a seat belt ticket I got a few years back. In the state I live in, a seatbelt ticket doesn't go on my insurance report. Do I need to be worried about this or am I ok still. I have no dui or anything like that. Thanks for the help guys!!

I don't think this is a problem since a seat belt violation isn't a moving violation. I think the intent is to discover moving violations which would indicate a pattern of reckless disregard for oneself and the public.

Thanks for the reply RCH! It just worries me because I tried to be as truthful as possible so it wouldn't hurt my chances to get hired on.

The BN, like UP and all the rest of the class 1's are more interested in dui's and major moving violations. A lot of the jobs in the respective mechanical departments require a valid license and in some cases, CDL. Your seat belt ticket being omitted shouldn't hurt you. But don't mention it, either. Unless they ask. Which they most likely won't.
