How can I clear a DOT citation?

by Kent

While in NY,I missed a low clearance sign..needless to say,I hit a over pass..truck itself wasn't damaged,but trailer was.

I was sent home on a bus. now every company I apply is telling me the same thing..The accident is a hinder.

Charges are failure to obscure warning signs.. Is there any hope of me getting a job again?

An accident like this is not minor and is a significant red flag to future employers. While "missing" a sign can happen, employers may think that the next sign you may miss will be a red light or a stop sign or a school bus stop...
With exceeding cost associated with running trucking companies, they are not able to take risks as they could do in years past. You will likely be able to get a job at a reputable company in three years.
