Should Party Limo Bus Drivers Be Responsible For Drunk Passengers?

Posted on August 8, 2012

Who should be responsible for drunken passengers, especially when the chauffeur may be busy driving and in a separate compartment? Who does the monitoring for under-age drinking and/or over-consumption? Legislators and regulators may start trying to decide.
Who should be responsible for drunken passengers, especially when the chauffeur may be busy driving and in a separate compartment? Who does the monitoring for under-age drinking and/or over-consumption? Legislators and regulators may start trying to decide.

In the wake of another party bus-related death in California, a local media website is asking a serious question that now confronts the chauffeured transportation industry.

As is the case with high-profile motorcoach accidents, limo bus deaths will undoubtedly attract attempts to legislate and regulate, especially in the hyper-regulatory state of California.

Operators need to pay attention, as liability burdens and costs could become bigger factors in running limo buses.

LCT Magazine now has a related poll question live on its website. Please take a moment to answer and help inform industry advocates.
