    Last company is reporting three accidents, yes I hit two right turn curves and ran a stop sign over but did not receive any tickets or citations and no damage to the truck or trailer, now how do I contact so I can get a job?

    Where is your location?
    How much experience do you have?
    On job applications do not put the word "accidents" or you'll never be hired.
    You had three "incidents", not "accidents." Make sure you say "incidents."

    How does the company know you hit curbs?
    How does the company know you knocked down a stop sign?

    Big mistake!
    Never, ever snitch on yourself.
    Many drivers on this forum are unemployed or under employed because they call the safety dept. constantly over things like that.

    How much experience do you have?
    Where is your location?
    Maybe we can find a 2nd chance company that will hire you.

    7 mos. experience is a big plus for you.
    Which state is on your CDL? That's what companies want to know.
    We can probably find a new job pretty quickly if we know the state listed on your CDL.

    OK, we'll give you some companies.
    Submit the application and then call and explain you didn't have any accidents; you bumped a curb and knocked a stop sign down and no damage to truck or trailer.
    You'll be asked on the application why you were fired, so list those "incidents" as bumping a curb and knocking down a stop sign.
