Stop false DAC Reporting petition reaches 830 signatures . . . keep them coming!   Here are a few more DAC horror stories:

  • I too,  have been a victim of such a mess.  It was said that I abandoned a truck, but I did not.  I left the truck at the terminal that I picked up from when I first started working for them.  It is  still on my record.
  • I have fallen victim to this practice.  I have been out of work since July because of two false reports from companies I have worked for.   As to add insult to injury, one of them has gone as far as to stop my ability to draw unemployment.  Enough is enough.  This has to stop.  I have already contacted my congressman as to this travesty.  Something has to be done.
  • I worked for *******  for 10 years as a driver and a trainer. While driving through Bakersfield, CA about 10 years ago,  I was the victim of a hit-and-run accident. A pick-up truck came out of a bar parking lot and clipped my fender causing minimal damage. The driver then proceeded to leave the scene at a high rate of speed. I pulled over and immediately called 911 and a highway patrolman was dispatched to the location. He took the report and I then called my company and reported it to the safety department. A few years later I decided to sever employment with *******  and did everything that was expected…gave them 2 weeks notice, delivered my truck to their main terminal in Salt Lake City, cleaned the truck inside and out, and left on what I thought was good terms. I applied for a job with another company and they ran my D.A.C. report…it said that I was involved in a hit-and-run but neglected to mention that I was the victim.  It virtually took an act of Congress to resolve the issue to the satisfaction of the new company. As far as I know that entry is still on my DAC.
  • I have had false reports filed against me:  an in house on-yard accident which never occurred,   a truck abandonment which never occurred,   a refusal to run without hours, terminated -refusal to drive when interstate closed due to ice . . .these people must be stopped from doing this.

Fight back against the DAC . . . sign the petition . . . write your State Attorney General . . .
