The question is "Have you ever been received a not criminally responsible disposition of any criminal case other than a minor traffic violation?". I caused rear-end collisions in highway due to the sudden stop of the car and no alcohol at all. The disposition was probation before judgement so should I put this record for answering the question?
Negligent driving is considered to be a minor traffic violation. Based upon the limited information provided, you do not need to list this charge. You should consult with an employment attorney to be sure.

If a client needs specific legal advice or opinions, he or she should retain counsel for advice or to undertake representation.
"Not criminally responsible" is a plea to a criminal charge based on a mental condition that prevents the offender from either appreciating the criminality of their conduct or conforming their conduct to the requirements of the law, so I doubt "not criminally responsible" is really what you mean. Causing a rear-end collision for which you were cited but received a "probation before judgment" is neither a "conviction" nor a "guilty" finding. If the question concerns being "convicted" and this is the only legal event you believe is applicable to the question, reference to it can be omitted.
