Submitted on Jul 28, 2011

The following information was released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA):

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has ordered Georgia-based H&W Tour, Inc., to immediately cease all intrastate and interstate passenger service within hours  of the Agency uncovering violations “so widespread as to demonstrate a continuing and flagrant general disregard” for the safety of its passengers and the motoring public.

“Illegal and unscrupulous bus companies are a serious threat to innocent travelers,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “The full force of the federal government will be brought to bear on those who willfully place bus passengers and others who share the road in needless peril.”
