Bus travel is popular, inexpensive, and often safe way to travel. However, a bus crash does happen on occasion. Moreover, when it does, results are tragic.
More Traffic Means Bus Crash More Likely
Whether a motor coach is for local transportation or chartered for a destination outside Southwest Florida, buses are popular. Especially relevant, a bus is similar to a train, moving large groups of people to and from various destinations in Florida and beyond.
There are thousands of registered bus companies, motor coach businesses, and tourist operations making their services available to groups. Moreover, national carriers, large Florida-wide chartered bus services, and local bus services all have to comply with regulations. Non-compliance often results in a big bus crash.
Indeed, a bus crash occurs with some increasing frequency. Usually, we may trace motor carrier safety law violations as our most common causes in these tragic accidents.
While you have time, do your research. Choose a safe bus company, safe driver, and plan a safe trip. Consequently, you may avoid a bus crash.
Liability in Bus Crash Incidents
Generally, a for-hire passenger carrier operating a commercial bus—motor coach—complies with several requirements. Compliance helps prevent a bus crash. But, compliance alone is insufficient. Rather, bus companies must operate under best practices
Among these regulations are:
- Possess U.S. Department of Transportation registration number
- Having operating authority registration from Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
- Driver must possess Commercial Drivers License
- Maintain at least $5 million insurance coverage
- Provide accessible motor coach service
- Use buses equipped with wheelchair lifts and secured sections for individuals with disabilities
Moreover, our government issues safety ratings for bus companies. Accordingly, every travel agent or tour company should select only bus companies having a satisfactory safety rating. When they don’t, then these parties may also face liability in a bus crash.
