Federal Government Halts Licensing of New Bus Companies

The Washington Post reports that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has temporarily halted the granting of licenses to new bus companies. This action comes after a bus company that had its license revoked, got a new license under a different name.  The renamed bus company is believed to have used retread tires on the steering axle which is prohibited by federal rules.  The retread tires failed and caused an accident in Texas that resulted in the deaths of 17 people.Bus companies and trucking companies regularly violate federal safety rules in order to save money.  When the bus and trucking companies violate the safey rules they cause accidents and innocent people can be seriously injured or killed.After an accident involving a bus or tractor trailer the only way to find out if the driver was impaired, had been driving longer than allowed by Federal Law or that the bus or truck was not being properly maintained is to hire a lawyer to investigate what caused the accident.  At Berger & Lagnese, LLC, our experienced team of attorneys will work hard to find out why the wreck really happened.
