What can an employer ask on an application?

I'm a little confused about something I saw on an application.
I have a lot of CSR experience from several previous jobs I've had, one of which I had for 2 years. I enjoyed those kinds of jobs. Since this is the case, of course I'm interested in those kinds of jobs again. There's only a few positions of this nature in my town that are constantly hiring, one of which being a call center.
One of the first questions on their application is "Have you had any moving violations in the past 5 years?"-- why is this question necessary at a job where you are not required to drive for them and what exactly are they looking for? They also ask about felonies, but they do not ask about misdemeanors.
I had a ticket in '08 and a ticket in '10. I have not had any other tickets and I've never been arrested or convicted of a crime. Does this bar me from getting this kind of call center job? I'd say I'm the perfect candidate otherwise.
