Ever wonder why Traffic information is reported under the Criminal County, National Criminal History and 50-State Sex Offender components of a background check? The reason is because Traffic falls under the criminal court system.
We are making a change to this practice and will be removing traffic violations from these sections. We are making these changes for the following three reasons:
- This will help to ensure that we continue to be compliant with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) regulations.
- We have heard your requests and concerns about minor traffic tickets falling under such serious categories as Criminal and Sex offender reports. Please be assured that if it is a criminal charge, such as a third -offense DUI or vehicular homicide, the information will still be reported under the criminal section.
- Another reason we are making this change is because traffic data is not consistent across the nation. Some states include traffic information in their criminal courts, but others do not. To provide you with consistency in information, ordering a Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) search is a better, more accurate, option.
If you need Traffic information, we can provide you with this information through a Motor Vehicle Records report. You can order an MVR that will give you up-to-date and accurate information to better meet your needs.
If you are in need of traffic information to make a hiring decision, please contact us and we will set up your ordering system to include the MVR. We would love to talk with you and help meet your needs.
