Description

The Atlantic City Press analyzed Federal Highway Aministration records of unannounced roadside inpsections; found that more than 10 percent of the buses were in such bad condition and were ordered off the road. The failure rate of some bus companies exceeded 25 percent and token penalties involved small fines that could be written off as business costs. As a result of the series, legislative hearings held in Atlantic City led to increased fines, and tighter regulations, Mar. 6 - 7, 1994.
