U.S. Department of Transportation Orders
C & D Transportation, Inc. to Shut Down
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has declared Illinois-based
C & D Transportation, Inc. (USDOT #2096634), an imminent hazard to public safety and ordered the interstate motor carrier to immediately shut down its operations. C & D Transportation, Inc. has willfully violated an out-of-service order and continued to operate by renting vehicles on the effective date of the out-of-service order, one of which crashed; has failed to ensure that its drivers comply with commercial driver's license requirements, English proficiency requirements, and vehicle weight limits; and has committed records of duty status violations. C & D Transportation, Inc.'s flagrant disregard for compliance with safety regulations poses an ongoing and continuing imminent hazard to public safety and must be discontinued immediately.
