A Los Angeles-based passenger bus service that was illegally lending its name to other unsafe bus companies has been ordered to cease operations by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which cited of plethora of safety violations that it says were endangering the traveling public.
Most of us know we should perform regular health checks on our vehicles, but how many of us actually do them? When was the last time you checked the tyres? Or the oil level? Or even the lights?
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued five new Safety Alerts last week that provide general aviation (GA) pilots with mitigating strategies for preventing the most frequent types of accidents.
A train transporting crude oil exploded in a giant fireball yesterday in North Dakota after hitting another train that had derailed. No injuries were reported, although the accident sent more than 2,400 people living within a five mile radius of the crash site to hastily set up shelters in Fargo.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), working with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), issued a final policy for improving workplace safety for aircraft cabin crewmembers, including hearing conservation programs.
The National Transportation Safety Board yesterday issued two “urgent” safety recommendations to the Federal Transit Administration as part of its ongoing investigation into the deaths of two Bay Area Rapid Transit track workers who were struck by a BART train near Walnut Creek, Calif., on October 19.
One driving attitude that can get us into trouble and stress us out is an obsession with getting around the guy in front of us. Do you need to be at the front of the line?

Just in time for the holidays, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has kicked off its annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" winter crackdown on drunk and drugged driving.

The U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released a new National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behavior in which nearly half of drivers surveyed say speeding is a problem on our nation's roads, and one in five drivers surveyed admitted, "I try to get where I am going as fast as I can."
When we survey drivers during our training courses, we regularly have over 90% of participants rating themselves as better than average drivers. You probably fall into this group too. It’s almost certainly true; most of the time at least. I have conducted thousands of driving evaluations over 25 years and have run across very few really bad drivers.
