After several multiple-fatality bus crashes, authorities in New York state and New York City have just completed a one-month crackdown on illegal buses, the New York Post reported Saturday.
The tabloid said that the New York City Police Department and state transportation officials had put 46 interstate buses out of commission for “everything from safety violations to mechanical issues.”
As part of the sweep, three bus companies that were transporting passengers out of state, but didn’t even have a license to operate, were immediately shut down, according to the Post.
The crackdown came in the wake of a startling number of tour-bus accidents this year, including one that killed 15 people on their way to Chinatown in March.
The New York safety-inspection crackdown wound up with 150 summonses being issued to bus companies and drivers, the Post said.
