The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Monday, May 7, announced that it has ordered Georgia-based Judson Mobley Logging Inc. to immediately cease all transportation services, declaring the truck company an imminent hazard to public safety.
FMCSA says the shutdown order follows an extensive review of the company’s operations, which found multiple violations of drug and alcohol testing, driver qualifications and vehicle maintenance rules. FMCSA says safety investigators discovered that the company continued to operate its vehicles in violation of a previous agency order to cease transportation services for an unsatisfactory safety rating.
“Unsafe truck companies that jeopardize public safety have no place on our roads,” says FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro. “We will continue to do everything within our current authority to aggressively pursue and shut down these illegal actors.”
