12 May 5 Good Reasons A Coach Is Secure
We usually hear that motorcoaches are much safer than travelling in a regular passenger vehicle, but why?
For starters, let’s state the obvious: they’re just big. Bottom line. There’s no doubt that size definitely works in your favor in the safety department. If you’re in a Honda Accord, a coach would be a pretty formidable something to meet on the road. Honestly, if we were choosing to be in one of those vehicles when they collided, we ‘d choose the coach, hands down.
They aren’t going to be exactly associated with speed. Let’s face it … nobody ever sees a bus end up for a few laps around the race course. Though they are built for comfort when traveling at freeway speed, they’re typically pretty conventional on the road, and this contributes to their overall safety.
Take a look at our safety rating from FMCSA. To maintain a high safety rating, specific standards need to be met, from the amount of hours a driver is permitted to work before needing to take a break to other important regulations. This rating ensures that our company has your safety in mind.
Driver hiring standards. Let it be known: we don’t just hire anybody. It is of the utmost importance to us that we don’t compromise safety for any who choose to ride with us. We have a stringent hiring process to ensure that only those whose personal behaviors, training and experience make them a great choice for our company and our passengers.
Routine maintenance checks. In addition to abiding by all regulations to be able to obtain a high safety rating, and being very careful about who we prefer to drive for us, we also handle our fleet, too. All of our vehicles undertake routine maintenance checks to ensure that everything is in fine order and won’t jeopardize safety for anyone aboard.
Next time someone asks why riding with us is safer than taking your own car, here are five reasons you can list right away. Ride in a coach, and consider safety again and again!
