DOT shuts down operator after multiple violations
California trucker Nebyou Brook has been ordered by the Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to cease operation after he was found in “egregious” violation of safety and traffic laws while operating a truck, including possession and consumption of alcohol and controlled substances while driving.
Brook also was in violation of hours-of-service rules.
He had been investigated over the course of a year during four roadside inspections. He was a driver for Purpose Driven Strategies of Apple Valley, Minn., and was ordered to cease driving Feb. 5.
“A CMV driver’s blatant disregard for public safety will not be tolerated,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro. “Our agency is committed to raising the bar for commercial vehicle and driver safety, and we will remain diligent in removing negligent carriers and drivers from the roads.”
