Safety Inspections Shut Down Some Operations

NPSLogo

Grand Teton National Park, in partnership with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration inspectors and the Wyoming Highway Patrol Commercial Carrier group, conducted multiple commercial vehicle safety inspections over several weeks this past summer. The inspections focused on commercial buses and trucks and evaluated both the drivers and their vehicles to improve safety for both passengers and other drivers on park roads.  During the inspections, a total of 165 vehicles received a comprehensive examination and 70 citations were issued for a variety of violations. The inspections resulted in 29 ‘out-of-service’ citations for significant equipment malfunctions, multiple safety violations, or inappropriate/unlicensed drivers — including one driver who was charged with having an open container of alcohol. Each of the operators with safety violations were cited by the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
