State inspector on look out for dangerous shuttle bus companies

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The Georgia Department of Public Safety has issued 37 cease and desist orders from January 2012 until now.

In April, the Georgia Department of Public Safety issued 12 cease and desist orders. The majority of the orders were issued because the driver or company was not certified and did not have the proper permits from the state. However, most of the cease and desist orders since 2012 have been for safety violations.

In February, Kingsmen Limousine Service was ordered to shut down because of mechanical issues. Atlanta Airport Ground Transportation and North Express Airport Shuttle were both ordered to shut down because of non-compliance with braking requirements and driver qualification requirements. Other companies were shut down because of non-compliance with medical qualification requirements and failure to maintain minimum liability insurance.
