They don't have to. If it's a consumer complaint they will just send a letter.
Send a FOIA to the FMCSA, any info/complaint will be sent in a few months. Heavily redacted names, ect.
Have you had a complaint filed against your DOT#?

Well, I once received a complaint about myself.
Someone bothered to look up my phone off of my DOT# on the door and complained that I would not let them merge, so they ended up on a shoulder.
I remember that situation well, in which going to the lane on the left wasn't any option. All I could was to reasonably slow down so that the 4 wheeler could have sped up and made it before the ramp ends but no, she slowed down too. I made her aware of the hazard with a prolonged horn signal...
But you know how that works, you tell her what uneducated driver she was by not knowing what the meaning of the right of way was, and she went ballistic.
I had a cop pulling me over 25 miles later...and spent another 30 minutes on letting him to review the dash cam.
He wasn't too nice but let me go.
I don't know if he gave that women a ticket...maybe I should have called her and asked.
Go to the hardware store and buy some roofing nails.
RedForeman and Rideandrepair Thank this.
