Stop False DAC Reports Petition Nearing 1,000 Signatures

Will more professional truck drivers continue to come together and work to end the false reporting by trucking companies against drivers DAC reports?  Our Stop False DAC Reporting petition is nearing 1,000 signatures, but many more are needed in order to show a strong and viable case against this segment of corruption in the trucking industry.  This petition is one reason, I believe, that USIS removed itself from DAC Services, and was taken up by HireRight DAC Trucking Solutions.

Previous false information placed on a driver’s DAC report by the former USIS/DAC Services, could even be more difficult to have removed because now, HireRight can simply say that they are not the company who placed such information on the report . . . that it was done by USIS/DAC, which is no longer associated with the services.   An interesting move as the DAC Petition grows in support?   Furthermore, the complaints by drivers continue:

  • DAC has completely ruined my Driving career. My DOT/MVR/DMV record mean nothing! to anyone in Trucking. Compared to the lying slander of this reporting agency! My understanding is of the companies that use this agency (of which is 90% of them) when checking a Drivers back ground Dac is the first check. They look” No further…if there is something Negative there, that’s it! No one compares it to local/state/federal records. Or even ask or listen to the Driver who’s career/livelihood is on the line! Nowhere” in America, is this allowed! Slander/defamation/predigest should never” be tolerated! however; this Dac agency seems to be a exception to the rule! They destroy lives, and could care less! Trucking companies use this agency to pay back Drivers that won’t put up with theie abuse! when you quit” a company…they pay you back” through this Dac reporting agency.
  • I’m a victim of this, after almost 11 yrs of driving got blacked balled by 2 companies and now with disconnection notices and an eviction notice I’m unable to get a driving job, a father of 2 young kids my life is ruined, now at 45yrs of aged I’m suppose to start over again, thanks U S Government, thanks for the American dream.
  • I agree.   I am a victim of dac reports.  I’ve been a driver for 10 years nowand it’s impossible to get dac to do anything for the drivers.  They gave me a real hard time getting copies, they also had a false report from a company that I had left years ago. The only thing I was allowed to do is write a statement, but most companies are going to believe the company over a driver.  I want to end Dac.
  • I hope something can be done.  I’ve been out work for two years now,because no trucking company would hire me. I have some false report on my DAC, and trying get information on how can I get this fixed.  It is a shame how companies  don’t care.  I  am a good driver,  never had a accident, and pretty sure there are drivers out there like me that are having the same frustration not able to get a decent job as a professional driver.  I just hope something can be done soon.  I would give all my support and help to fight this abuse against my fellow drivers.  I am here to sign this petition and take action to try to help fix this problem we are having.  You have all my support, and God bless you.

Help to spread the word about the DAC petition.   We will be posting a PDF file soon that you can print and fill out and submit to your area U.S. State Attorney’s office in order to move forward with this issue.   I will also be updating our YouTube DAC video ASAP . . .

Appreciate everyone’s help . . .
