CRACK DOWN: DOT SHUTTERS NEW YORK BUS COMPANIES
26 bus companies were closed down yesterday after a year long investigation into safety violations, some from New York.You have seen them on the New York State Thruway and I-90 and I-95. As bus and truck accident attorneys we see safety violations that cause injury and death. The public widely assumes transportation companies are following the rules.
Anne Farrow of the FMCSA said the bus companies were “enterprises deliberately started to dodge safety laws.” I am all for bus and trucking companies and the vast majority of drivers who follow the rules, but for those cutting corners for profits and putting the public at risk….shut them down.
