dispatcher of a Vermont trucking company has been fined $1,000
for concealing driving records.
Department of Transportation's Office of Inspector General fined
Gary Chamberlain, the chief dispatcher and a driver for Northern
Gas Transport Inc. of Lyndonville, VT, for helping the company
conceal records that disclosed NGT drivers were driving in excess
of hours permitted.
As a driver,
Chamberlain falsified his own logs and as dispatcher, forced
drivers to drive beyond the permissible time limits. The remaining
defendants in this case, NGT and two of its other officials,
will be sentenced April 19.
