Live from UMA Motorcoach Expo

January 18, 2008

January 17, 2008 and day 1 is finished at the UMA Motorcoach Expo!  Attended some good seminars today about various motorcoach topics.  In the morning session we heard from Mark from the Chairmen at the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). The NTSB investigates accidents around the country and then makes recommendations to ultimately help prevent accidents in the future.  These recommendations help make regulatory changes, operating changes and  manufacturing changes related to the country’s transportation system.

The next presenter was Dave Hugel from the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration).  He talked about several important issues related towards studying motorcoach fatigue and studying crashes of motorcoaches in a control study.   -rj
