Incidents keeping me from working

Thank you!

Well I'm glad I came across this forum! I was recently involved in an incident at a rest stop. It was about 5 am and the lot was crowded. It was difficult to find a stop so ended up pulling into a spot that was very dark. All I needed to do was use the rest room and be on my way. Long story short, as I pulled out I came to realize too late that there was not enough room for my trailer. I ended up ripping the bumper and headlight out of the truck that was parked next to me. Is this a reportable incident and will that affect my license? I reported it to my company immediately, took lots of pictures.

Brenda, This is what is called a preventable accident. While it won’t affect your CDL directly, it will most likely be listed on your DAC as a preventable accident. While it’s not a positive on your driving record, it’s certainly not the kiss of death. If you show a pattern of these, then of course, a company can use it as a reason to decline your application.

Hope this answers your question. Keep an eye on your wagon driver. Stay safe!!
