It has been reported that two tour bus companies in the United States have not received full government safety audits in more than two years. That is true even though roadside inspections have found problems that were serious enough to place the companies involved on what is referred to as “alert” status. These companies are but two of the hundreds of tour bus companies that have been cited for major safety violations.
The companies have received very little oversight or regulation of their full operations. This obviously is not good news. The government lists 433 companies on alert status. For your information, alerts are based on spot inspections of buses and drivers in the previous two years that found repeated or serious safety violations. It’s most alarming to see the poor job being done by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the federal agency that has the duty to oversee bus and truck safety.
