Can a misdemeanor traffic violation make me unemployable?

Question Details: I believe I was turned down for employment in part due to 2 misdemeanor offenses on my driving record. About 7 years ago, I pulled in front of a car that hit me, so a misdemeanor for left turn violation and then another misdemeanor for failure to fulfill financial obligation. I had insurance at the time but I guess it was inadequate. No one was injured but the car I collided with was very expensive. The second one, failure to fulfill financial obligation according to the report was dismissed but still showed up on the background check. I have been trying for years to obtain meaningful employment in IT, however maybe I've been turned down due to these two misdemeanors that I wasn't aware were there. Am I unemployable due to these misdemeanor traffic convictions?
