19 motorcoaches placed out of service in quaker state

The Pennsylvania State Police recently participated in a five-day enforcement effort inspecting motor coaches. State and municipal motor carrier enforcement personnel, including Philadelphia and Pittsburgh police officers and Public Utility Commission staff, inspected 341 motor coaches at popular travel destinations such as casinos and amusement parks throughout the state.

Between Nov. 19 and Nov. 23, enforcement personnel placed 19 motor coaches and 10 drivers out of service for various safety violations.

“Motor coach strike forces are just one of the many ways we help ensure the safety of everyone traveling throughout Pennsylvania,” said State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan. “Whether you’ll be driving 20 or 200 miles this holiday season, it’s important to be aware of the road and to be a safe, courteous and patient driver.”
