FMCSA orders Ohio operator to cease operations

Posted on May 1, 2013

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ordered Toledo, Ohio-based Destiny Tours to immediately cease all interstate passenger transportation service for failing to obtain proper federal operating authority.

“We are going to continue to use every tool we have to ensure bus companies comply with federal regulations,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Bus companies that attempt to dodge safety regulations by not properly registering have no place on our nation’s roadways.”

A review of company records by FMCSA investigators found that Destiny Tours had, on five occasions, operated in interstate commerce without obtaining proper federal authority and beyond the scope of its registration. The investigation also found that the company owner, Derrick Jones, served as the driver of the vehicle in each of the unauthorized interstate operations.
