DAC & Unpaid Loans

Interesting Old School. Thanks. Seems wrong to mess with a DAC for something unrelated to driving.

(Naturally i'll cough up what I can. I believe in paying my debts)

DAC & Unpaid Loans

Gyys n gals, im wondering, can you get a mark on your DAC for an unpaid loan? I had some very serious family issues and had to quit my driving job with a Dallas carrier before my year was up. I hated doing it and im making much less money at the new local job but it had to be done. I just got a call from some firm telling me that if I dont come up with X dollars by monday that they will file complaints with DOT, credit bureaus, DAC and some other place. They tell me that these complaints will render my license unusable and I will become unemployable. I have no experience with this. I know I violated a holy law by quitting after 6 months. I didn't want to, I just had to. I talked to the Dallas carrier before and after and they were very nice about it all and told me to call them when I was able to come back, which I still intend to do. So im kind of shocked and surprised to hear all of this. Anyone know whats up with this firm's threats? Are they valid? Thanks and sorry for violating a holy.

Blew by weigh station

Thanks for that info Brian. 435 is kinda steep. Plus points. =( Guess I better start looking for an attorney to see if I can get it to a lesser violation with the same or similar fine. I wonder how a man would fair trying that without an attorney. Can't hurt to ask em I guess. I know I'll never miss that one again!

Blew by weigh station

Ah awesome. Thanks for the replies and well wishes. It was open btw. =( Hearing that it's not too big of a deal helps. I will wait for a ticket and hire an attorney if need be. Polywog, after reading on other posts about people walking in bills and your advice about turning around I realize that's what I should have done. Good to know about nor pass too! I'm not confident that we were entirely prepared for this. I don't know how you solo guys did/do it. I'm no dummy, finished 1st in my class in books, road and yard, but there is a ton of stuff to get confused about out here. Thanks tt for everything.

Shouldn't the company supply these

We had to buy load locks and meat locks. Weekly deductions. They will not replace the meat locks. Period. In case of a repower or sealed drop and hook we call and get a po for new load locks. Easy as pie.

No yard dog? No problem.

Time to hold my breath

Sam P., I'm not an expert on anything trucking. That said, I feel like your instinct to be honest is best. I know Stevens Transport digs for REAL. Saw a couple of guys who I was fond of get the boot for things they fudged or didn't disclose. I'm glad I was as honest as possible because they knew about it and had a chance to see that good or bad I'll give em the straight ****. No surprises for them = no surprises for you in my very limited experience.
