Question about filling form N400: Is traffic violation one kind of crime?


#1

I am filling form n400 and have a question.
Here is my situation: I have traffic violation. All of them are misdemeanor (NO DUI or any thing serious). I have traffic tickets and parking ticket and i paid them all in full. There is one traffic ticket: i drove on wrong lane and didn’t carry car insurance. For this one, i went to court and i admitted that was my fault to drove on wrong lane and showed my car insurance. Luckily Judge didn’t charge me anything and let me go.

For part 12: Additional Information About You. Question 22 to 27. i confuse the term “crime”. Is traffic violation one kind of crime?
Here is my answer for questions. Please let me know if i am correct:
