We often hear that motorcoaches are much safer than riding in a regular passenger vehicle, but why?
For starters, let’s state the evident: they’re just big. Bottom line. There’s no doubt that size absolutely works in your favor in the safety department. If you’re in a Honda Accord, a coach would be a fairly formidable something to meet on the road. Frankly, if we were preferring to be in one of those vehicles when they crashed, we ‘d choose the coach, by far. Pretty sure you would, too.
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. Along with adhering to all regulations to be able to get a high safety rating, and being very cautious about who we prefer to drive for us, we also look after 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.
They aren’t going to be exactly connected with speed. Let’s admit it … nobody ever sees a bus turn out for a few laps around the race course. Though they are built for relaxation 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, a number of standards have to be met, from the amount of hours a driver is authorized to work before needing to relax to other important regulations. This rating assures that our company has your safety in mind.
Thus, 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 choose safety again and again!
