Commercial buses and trucks, especially during the holiday season, are heavily relied upon by millions of travelers, as passengers and others on our nation’s roadways, to operate in the safest manner possible. Unfortunately, they are often the cause of accidents on our roads, injuring and killing passengers, drivers, or others. Policies implemented and data collected by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”), particularly the Compliance Safety Accountability program, help to recognize and quell any safety concerns and keep bus and trucking companies operating as safely as possible. Recently, the FMCSA has shifted their attention to commercial buses and truck safety. In doing so, by December, changes in their policy will be completed and implemented.
The changes will bring an increased attention to commercial bus and truck safety. Hopefully, this will result in less accidents and less injuries and fatalities for passengers, drivers, and everybody on the roads in Massachusetts and nationwide. According to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, data collected by the FMCSA and he policies they subsequently implement are essential in keeping our roads safe.
