Did you know there’s something you can do if you think a trucking company or a bus company has violated a safety law or regulation? There is! The federal agency in charge of regulating trucking and busing companies welcomes consumer complaints. We all have to step up and take action to keep dangerous truck drivers, negligent trucking companies, and poorly run busing companies off our highways.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is the federal agency charged with preventing commercial motor vehicle-related fatalities and injuries. To that end, the administration uses strong enforcement tactics to ensure that companies follow safety regulations. The administration also targets high-risk carriers and commercial motor vehicle drivers, strengthens commercial motor vehicle equipment and operating standards, and works to increase safety awareness. One way the administration carries out these missions is by teaming up with consumers.
If you have experienced safety issues with a moving company, busing company, or trucking company, you may call a hotline or file an online complaint. FMCSA wants to hear from consumers. By reviewing and acting on consumer complaints, the administration can improve motor carrier safety enforcement as well as address discrimination and service issues.
