The annual Limousine Association of New Jersey fundraiser has long served as a role model for industry togetherness.
LOS ANGELES -- A crackdown on ground transportation operations at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday removed 26 commercial vehicles from service, impounded one vehicle and issued 71 citations to the drivers of buses, limousines and shuttle vans.
During the four-hour operation, the airport police department, the California Highway Patrol, LAX officials and the California Public Utilities Commission inspected 275 commercial passenger vehicles that serve the nation's third-busiest airport.
The multi-agency team focused on proper driver and vehicle licenses, transponders, utilities commission and airport operating permits and proper commercial insurance. Officials said buses, vans and limos were removed from service for serious mechanical problems and vehicle code violations while drivers were cited for such things as lack of insurance, improper licenses and expired permits.
The operators of the vehicles removed from service must clear up all mechanical, permitting, insurance and vehicle code issues before they can return to the airport.
"This operation is part of a proactive approach by Los Angeles Airport Police and our partner agencies to provide the traveling public with safe commercial transportation to and from LAX," said Los Angeles Airport Police Chief Michael Hyams. "Air travelers rely heavily on commercial ground transportation services, and with the busy summer travel season beginning, it’s important to ensure these providers are complying with all laws.
