Charter Buses - Be Careful!!!

Cyclist's picture

Here's a report that reveals some scary stuff.

A charter bus with 29 passengers runs off the road and overturns. The roof of the bus partially detaches due to an improper repair and, as a result, all 30 occupants were ejected with 15 killed.

A post accident review of the bus company revealed only one Federal Motor Carrier safety check in the past 19 years. This post review also revealed a noncompliance with drug/alcohol random checks, driver qualification files, driver logs,maintenance and inspection programs, and periodic inspection of commercial motor vehicles.

And how many times have we put our children on these charter buses?

See the report here.
