NJ Bus Attorney/Lawyer – Transportation Law

/ 0 Comments

Because of the way that Google, Yahoo and BING do their searching, I find it necessary to use a myriad of terms to explain what I do and who I can help.

I represent bus companies in New Jersey (NJ) and New York (NY) and practice before the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT, NJ DOT), the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT, NYS DOT), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the US Department of Transportation (USDOT, US DOT), and the former Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC).

My main practice is regulatory law for buses, which includes motorcoaches, minibuses, jitneys, vans, limousines and school buses, but I also do subrogation or property damage recovery for these vehicles in NJ and NY.  We represent bus companies who service the Atlantic City casino industry and also have many Spanish speaking bus clients.  

Most people consider our law firm to be bus experts, which means we are knowledgeable in this area based upon years of experience and the volume of work that we do. You can refer to us as attorneys or lawyers.

If you ever have a question regarding bus or transportation law, please contact our law firm. Our website address follows. There is a link on it to contact us by email.

NTSB Chairman Emphasizes Bus Safety

/ 0 Comments

National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chairman Mark V. Rosenker was the keynote speaker at the Annual Meeting of the Greater NJ Motorcoach Association (GNJMA) in Atlantic City on June 3rd. He urged New Jersey based motorcoach operators to take action when accidents occur and make safety improvements that will bring the industry closer to an accident free environment.

Chairman Rosenker focused on some of the most notable highway accidents in recent years and the safety recommendations that have resulted from the NTSB investigations.

Rosenker pointed out that tragedies like the collapse of the Boston “Big Dig” tunnel ceiling panel and the Minneapolis bridge not only attract huge amounts of media attention, but also shake Americans’ confidence in their nation’s roadways. “Our job at the NTSB is to restore the confidence of the traveling public after a major transportation disaster by conducting an unbiased, independent investigation to determine the cause of the accident and find solutions to prevent it from happening again.”

In his closing remarks, Rosenker called on the New Jersey motorcoach industry to “find a maintenance improvement, implement a new operational policy, provide better training, embrace a new technology, but take action and do something different.” Rosenker concluded by saying, “Therefore, my charge to you is, when accidents occur, which they inevitably will, take action, and do something to make your company a safer place for your passengers, your employees, your families, and your community.”

GNJMA is a regional organization of motorcoach operators for which I serve as General Counsel. We represent the interests of motorcoach operators in our Region and promote safe and cost efficient operations. For information on membership, please contact me.
