    If a company cares about DAC then you should not be working for them. There are thousands of small companies that do not even check that because they know it is all lies and means nothing.

    I was just going over my employment record and, yes; wenger is part of the brude. What a joke, this no laughing matter when it comes to trashing another drivers work, life and means of paying his bills. This company is ran by greed and the complete lack of safty for all people on the roads and the truck driver. With today's lack of work or the opportunity to work in the Davenport,IA area, its hard to pass up a paycheck. Don't forget the people that work on those death-traps. You get what you pay for, they must be getting payed minimum wage or less because they work like that. It they get shut down by the DOT, they have enough money to just another name, new phone number and new incorporation. What a traggedy what this country has had to put up with.
    trucker43 Thanks this.

    ..... I agree with this old post, I can't believe how disgraceful this industry has become and there seems to be no one to step up to the plate on this.
    ... Drivers will not stand together on these kinds of issues for some unknown reason even
    While they know it will only continue to get worse & worse

    jethro712 and trucker43 Thank this.
