Tennessee Trucking Shut Down by FMCSA
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently ordered an immediate shutdown of Tennessee trucking company Terri’s Farm after it was found to be in violation of federal regulations. Terri's Farm was found to be operating as a renamed version of Three Angels Farm, which was previously shut down by the FMCSA for serious safety violations.
New Name, Same Trucking Violations
According to the FMCSA news release, Terri’s Farm is a “chameleon operation,” using the same unsafe equipment to commit the same type of infractions committed by Three Angels Farm, the horse transport company shut down in June 2012. The safety violations committed by the company create imminent hazards to the safety of the traveling public, according to the FMCSA. Violations include:
- Terri’s Farm allowed its drivers to operate commercial vehicles without proper driver’s licenses.
- The company did not conduct proper controlled substance testing.
- Fatigued and disqualified drivers used poorly maintained equipment, resulting in the death of at least four horses.
