Many bus accidents happen because the bus company was negligent or careless. Defective equipment, poorly maintained buses or not properly trained bus drivers put the life of passengers at risk.
All Nation Coach in Staten Island, New York, a high-risk passenger carrier was shut down yesterday by the The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The bus company was the reincarnation of Tichy Express, Inc. that was shut down last year for multiple violations of federal safety regulations.
This action is the 16th out-of-service order issued by FMCSA since the deployment in April 2013 of more than 50 “Operation Quick Strike” safety investigations targeting high-risk passenger carriers.
