NTSB calls for Investigation of FMCSA over Trucking Crashes
By James Girards
The NTSB has called for an investigation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration claiming the FMCSA is faiolintg to protect the public. The claims result from the NTSB's investigation of 4 recent collisions in which 25 deaths and 83 injuries occurred. NTSB says FMCSA had enough information to take those trucking companies off the road long before the crashes occurred. The invormation known by FMCSA includes a laundry list of how not to operate a trucking or bus company including poor maintenance, bad brakes, bad tires, hours of service violations and lack of drug/alcohol testing.
