The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the government of British Columbia recently suspended the license of a B.C.-based bus rental service after a tragic bus accident in Oregon that killed the driver and nine passengers. During their investigation into the accident, the FMCSA discovered that Mi Joo Tour & Travel failed to take basic measures to protect passengers by making sure that their drivers had sufficient rest for safe vehicle operations. The FMCSA and the B.C. government said that the bus service had a pattern and practice of scheduling and dispatching drivers on trips with little regard to the amount of hours they worked in a given period of time.
