    A families daughter is another victim of a transportation company (shady). With so much technology its really a shame that its not used to make the transportation industry safe. Limousine operators that dont care how many hours an employee has worked, they are simply interested in collecting $$$$ Friends of mine used a limousine from lax around 9am and the driver fell asleep!!!!! They had the diviter down and where able to yell and wake the driver before they crashed. i am tired if reading of deaths in the linousine industry and charter bus industry. Party bus deaths are due to old junk party buses.... Charter buses are from old buses with mechanical issues.
