FMCSA Shuts Down another Unsafe Trucking Company

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is the agency of the federal government that aims decrease the number of Missouri truck accidents. The FMCSA creates rules and regulations that improve the safety of motor carriers like tractor trailers. Congress has also given the FMCSA the power to shut down unsafe trucking companies when they routinely fail to operate safely.

RC Investments, Inc., a motor carrier based in Oregon, has been subjected to a temporary restraining order from the United States District Court for the District of Oregon. The motor carrier had initially been ordered to shut down in August. The FMCSA discovered that the motor carrier used unlicensed drivers. The motor carrier failed to inspect its vehicles regularly and failed to institute a substance abuse testing program.

In November, the motor carrier was operating in defiance of the FMCSA’s orders, as the FMCSA during a two-week period in which the authorities conducted more than 8,000 surprise safety inspections. The FMCSA declared the motor carrier an imminent hazard to the public.

The FMCSA is ramping up its enforcement of motor carrier regulations. Thousands of motor carriers are subject to surprise inspections and roadside inspections. Enforcement cases are on the rise. The FMCSA hopes that its efforts will reduce the injuries and fatalities caused by Missouri tractor trailer accidents.

The FMCSA conducts inspections to catch unsafe motor carriers before their negligence causes a Missouri truck accident. However, the FMCSA’s enforcement actions cannot catch all of the negligent trucking companies in the country. Deadly Missouri truck accidents still occur. If you are injured in a truck accident, obtain the services of experienced Missouri truck accident attorneys to learn about your legal options.
