Vehicle Safety Priority 1 @ LCT

Posted on July 3, 2013 by - Also by this author

JULY 2013 LCT: Our July issue takes the lead on helpful ideas for improving limousine and limo bus safety, as recent accidents have captured national attention and challenged operators.

The articles in this issue are a starting point for continuing content in LCT on all aspects of safety, and how the industry should absorb and respond to the conclusions from high-profile accident investigations.

Safety always has been a recurring topic in LCT and at our annual trade shows and conferences. But like technology, vehicles and customer service, this area constantly changes and evolves as better products and practices are put into place.

We’ll be posting safety content at from the print issue throughout the month and urge you as operators to post comments on anything we missed, you liked, or that needs to be explored further. So far, we have Sara’s publisher’s page on limo bus safety and my back page column that sums up some of the lessons the industry can take away from the May limo fire in San Francisco.

No one has the final word on safety practices and rules. But there are plenty of operators and vendors who have shared good ideas and approaches with us.

These insights can help limousine operators adopt a set of best practices and training programs suited to their fleet vehicles and operations. And as the July issue makes clear, LCT Magazine once again stands as the content leader for the global industry in meeting challenges and finding solutions. Together, we can make and keep chauffeured service the safest option for ground transportation.
