California Airport Crackdown

Posted on August 2, 2006 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

LOS ANGELES — Buses, vans, shuttles, taxis, and limousines that entered Los Angeles International Airport or Oakland International Airport on July 19 and 13 respectively, were stopped and inspected for permits and safety issues as different governmental offices joined together in an effort to crackdown on illegal and unsafe vehicles.

In Los Angeles, personnel from the Los Angeles Airport Police Ground Transportation Unit, the California Public Utilities Commission, the city’s Department of transportation, and Los Angeles World Airports Landside Operations joined together to perform safety inspections and check for proper licensing.

In Oakland, Calif., the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC), the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, the Oakland International Airport, and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) conducted announced inspections, looking for violations, such as lack of license or insurance. The PUC said it issued misdemeanor warnings and “notice to correct” violations.
