Long Island Limo Group Warns About Making U-Turns In Stretches

Posted on July 27, 2015

LONG ISLAND, N.Y. -- Lawmakers and leaders in the limousine industry are demanding change after the horrific crash on Long Island last weekend that killed four of the eight women riding inside a limo while they were on a winery tour.

Robert Cunningham, President of the Long Island Limousine Association, has issued a bulletin to all association members asking them to "please tell your drivers not to make a U-turn" on County Route 48 in Southold until safety measures are addressed by officials. "Go down the street and turn around," the message said.

    I have to retract the "drunk" comment. Apparently, the better than average driver in the pick-up was just under the limit. To expand - for a limo company to fault the builders, when UN-qualified drivers are sent out in stretches with the dashboard lit up like Christmas trees is just absurd. CDL is coming to a limo company near you Brent. Prepare to crack open the wallet to pay for QUALIFIED CDL drivers. Coming to a Long Island Limo company near you, Sir.
