Missouri School Bus Transportation Facility Guilty of Safety Violations
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
The use of
school buses with Dayne Transportation has been discontinued by The Kansas City Public
School District after an unsafe issue arose last week. The district cut
ties with the transportation company after the Missouri Highway Patrol
performed a surprise inspection on Friday. The inspection was performed
at the Kansas City facility located at 1111 Winchester Avenue. The conclusion
of the inspection brought great concern with district officials, and the
company was let go.
Missouri Highway Patrol Troopers inspected 19 buses at the facility, and
eight were pulled out of service, eight were cited and only three passed
inspections. The buses' tires and extendable safety stop-signs were
two of the contributing factors for the safety violations. According to
the Missouri Highway Patrol Sergeant, school buses are required to undergo
an annual inspection in the spring as well as an independent inspection
before July 1st. The MHP was unable to verify a second inspection for
Surprise inspections are not uncommon by the Missouri Highway Patrol. When
is comes to the safety and well-being of children, heavy regulations in
the transportation industry are needed. Too many school accidents occur
every year in the United States, and so many of these accidents are preventable.
