PRLog - Aug. 21, 2014 - BRADENTON, Fla. -- Bus operators are required to follow federal transportation safety regulations however many bus companies choose to shirk the safety rules in a variety of ways that place passengers and motorists at risk. Tactics that bus company operators use to increase their profits include misleading authorities of the nature of their business and vehicles in order to obtain less costly insurance policies, and avoid required safety checks.

While it may be debatable for some that a business that places commercial busses full of intoxicated revelers traveling on Florida's highways and city streets is not a such a great idea. What is not debatable is that by not fully complying with federal and state transportation rules passengers and other drivers could be harmed by any number of issues from mechanical failure of buses not properly maintained to grossly inadequate insurance coverage for injuries resulting from crashes.

Bernard Walsh, an experienced trucking accident attorney in Bradenton Florida from the law firm of Shapiro Goldman Babboni & Walsh had this to say about the bus accident settlement, “Florida has the same party buses available for rental and many of these same regulatory violations are happening every day and night throughout the State of Florida.

Many of these companies are operating without complying with the rules imposed on passenger transportation by the intrastate trucking laws and interstate trucking regulations.”

Christina Walsh, a student attending  Thomas M. Cooley Law School's JD program elaborated on the issue with,”Passengers are allowed to become highly intoxicated while on party buses and many of these bus companies are not carrying the required minimum insurance for multi-passenger transportation. More regulation and enforcement needs to be carried out by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.”
