FMCSA shuts down another bus company

| 6/30/2011

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has shut down another bus company, this one based outside Atlanta, GA.

The federal agency says H&W Tour Inc. of Doraville represented “an imminent hazard to public safety.”

According to the FMCSA, the company had no authority to operate, had inadequate insurance, didn’t do drug or alcohol tests on its drivers and didn’t keep track of hours of service. Besides that, the company’s buses weren’t properly inspected, maintained or repaired according to federal investigators.

After a compliance review on June 29, the FMCSA ordered H&W to cease operations immediately and directed buses already on the road to proceed to their next destination, then shut down.
