    Hey guys I was on a 10 extension from my 30 day probation for driving and on my 36th day someone hit the back of my truck while I pulled into a drive way. The accident was deemed their fault however I was disqualified for an avoidable accident. I grieved it and am now waiting for a meeting. Has anyone heard of a driver getting DQ'd for an accident and winning?

    No, but it’s worth fighting. It’s hard to find an accident that UPS doesn’t consider avoidable.

    Sounds like you weren't really doing that good anyways getting an extension and this.

    You can always try to get another extension again in a year.

    I have but it depends on what supplement you're under. I know of two drivers personally that have had a accident their 30 and grieved it and won.

    The contract says a minor accident can’t disqualify you. And since it’s not your fault, I’d say things are looking good.

    Deemed their fault by who? Police? We do everything to avoid a crash.

    Residential Driveway or a business? Why did you pull into the driveway? Did you have too? Could you have parked along the curb?

    See where this is going....

    You were rear ended?

    How were you doing otherwise? Had you run bonus yet? Making service? Etc etc?

    Sounds like you may have been borderline to qualify, and this ended it.

    If they DQ’d you instead of sweeping it under the rug then see you next year.

    True story.
    A driver from the center I made book on go into an accident, He was at a stop sign and a drunk driver rear ended him, according to UPS it was avoidable because if he had looked at his mirror he would have seen the car approaching him.

    Just UPS being UPS

    ...and he could have levitated his truck up high enough so the drunk could pass under it.

    We have superpowers, you know.
