An official report released recently by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has demonstrated that all 2010 and 2011 Prodigy and Quest School Buses are being recalled.
The federal agency has claimed that these vehicles could pose a serious injury risk to passengers due to a problem with the vehicles’ seats. The news agencies covering recall alerts confirmed that the faulty seats in these recalled buses fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and because of that, all units should be refrained from being used.
The company Starcraft Bus decided to contact all school bus owners to personally let them know they should schedule a visit to an authorized dealership to have a reinforcement kit installed in the recalled units as soon as possible.
As a Bellingham personal injury lawyer, I hope this recall is successful. No child should suffer injuries as a result of an accident that occurred because of a manufacturer’s negligence. I’m glad this company was able to recognize the issue with their buses before any accidents were reported.
