NTSB meets with N.J. motorcoach group

Posted on June 10, 2008

National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Mark V. Rosenker urged New Jersey-based motorcoach executives to take action when accidents occur and make safety improvements that will bring the industry closer to an accident-free environment.

Addressing the 2008 annual membership meeting of the Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association (GNJMA) in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Rosenker focused on some of the most notable highway accidents in recent years and the safety recommendations that have resulted from the NTSB investigations.

In his closing remarks, Rosenker called on the New Jersey motorcoach industry executives to "find a maintenance improvement, implement a new operational policy, provide better training, embrace a new technology, but take action and do something different."
