on 10-10-11 i was to exit our security gate,they do a maintanence check on all outbound trailers..trailer was in bad order and had to be returned to shop for repair.
in the process of backing up i scraped the pole that holds the speaker..management was in the yard at the time and called it a preventable acciden..i called in a claim as per procedure and was put out of svc pending talking to safety..
i did all of that recvd a letter saying that i could protest it by writing down the facts and diagrams etc and send it to them..they do a review board and make there decision based on the information supplied..
what is a good form of showing them that this was not a preventable but an incident so that it does not go on my license..this happened in the companys private lot fyi..
my cdl record has no accidents-speeding..perfect score for 20 years plus
