FMCSA Orders Wisconsin Company To Shut Down

Posted on April 5, 2016

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has ordered Lyons Limousine of Edgerton, WI to immediately cease all intrastate and interstate operations after a federal investigation.

According to the report, a federal compliance review conducted found the company was in violation of multiple federal safety regulations including: repeatedly using an underage driver to operate a commercial motor vehicle, failing to conduct required pre-employment background checks on its drivers, failing to maintain any records of maintenance, and failing to monitor its drivers hours of service to prevent fatigued driving.

    Oh, please. FMCSA is a classically overbearing, sclerotic, functionally incompetent government agency that is totally focused on the minutiae of their "Rules" to the exclusion of anything real. None of those "compliance officers" have ever worked in the field or know anything about maintenance of vehicles or operating one. Would you allow a guy who serves spaghetti at the diner to be the mechanic working on the ball joints of your steering? No? Then don't allow FMCSA to shovel itself into your operations, either; same level of incompetence. (Not to suggest that there were not problems at this particular company, but to suggest the FMCSA is all-wise is preposterous.)
