As a past Chair of the Interstate Trucking Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice, I am familiar with safety regulations that apply to trucks and buses.
I can tell you if the safety regulations are followed by management and the people they employ, virtually all one vehicle crashes will not occur. Most two and multiple vehicle crashes will not occur.
The public needs enforcement of safety rules. Now.
Saturday, A Greyhound bus traveling in the passing lane struck a concrete barrier and then crossed over the travel lanes, struck an embankment and traveled up the embankment flipping onto its side.The bus crashed in Pennsylvania, after leaving New York City.
Early this summer, New York stepped up inspection of tour buses and found many violations. We can keep up inspections and enforce driving laws to reduce these senseless deaths and tragedies devastating members of the public and their families. We need to now, not tomorrow.
