    Hi everyone,

    I recently got into an accident in a commercial vehicle, and now I am finding it difficult to get a new job. Its my only accident since Ive had my CDLA, and I was wondering if anyone would know which specific companies out there are more lenient than others when it comes to an accident record.

    It can be dedicated, regional, or local. Thanks!

    A guy i used to work with fell asleep wrecked a set of doubles. No injuries except for himself. He got hired by a local construction company hauling gravel.

    Without details, advice is worthless to give.

    did you kill someone or run into a bus full of toddlers?

    How you write it on the application and who the company is makes all the difference in the world.
    But yes you will find a job, it will just be a little harder depending on the accident.

    No I didnt, noone was injured, I thought that the light I was approaching was a blinking yellow because I had just gone through several, well it turns out it was a regular light. So someone pulled out in front of me. I was tired, Im sure that had something to do with it
