Trucking Companies Deemed Unsafe, Shut Down

April 19, 2013 | Steve Crandall
Trucking Companies Deemed Unsafe, Shut Down Two Atlanta-based trucking companies have been shut down by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for failing to cooperate with safety investigators in the past month.  General Transportation, Inc. was deemed an imminent safety hazard while Southern Transportation refused to provides its safety records to FMCSA investigators. A July 2012 law gives FMCSA the authority to shut down a company if it does not provide such documentation. "Truck and bus companies that refuse to cooperate with safety investigators have no place on our nation's roadways," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. "We will continue to use our authority to shut down motor carriers that endanger the public."
