Motor Carrier Safety: Reincarnating Commercial Vehicle Co. Pose Safety Threat to Motoring Public; Federal Safety Agency Has Initiated Efforts to Prevent Future Occurrences
DIANE Publishing, 2009 - 30 pages
In 2008, the Fed. Motor Carrier Safety Admin. (FMCSA) reports that there were about 300 fatalities from bus crashes in the U.S. Although bus crashes are relatively rare, they are particularly deadly since many individuals may be involved. FMCSA tries to identify unsafe motor coach carriers and take them off the road. This report determines: (1) the number of motor coach carriers registered with FMCSA as new entrants in FY 2007 and 2008 that are substantially related to or in essence the same carriers the agency previously ordered out of service; and (2) what tools FMCSA uses to identify reincarnated carriers. The report analyzed FMCSA data to find matches on key fields (e.g., ownership, phone numbers, etc.). Charts and tables.
