Multiple units of certain buses manufactured by Coach and Equipment Manufacturing Corporation are being recalled over possible injury hazards, according to a series of news agencies.
The official recall statement was first published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and according to the information found in the report, all units of 2006 through 2010 Phoenix Transit Buses were equipped with wheelchair lifts that could become misaligned over long periods of use. If a wheelchair occupant is being suspended by these lifts and the platform becomes misaligned, the wheelchair occupant could experience an incident. According to the firm, the wheelchair could roll away and the occupant could fall since the outer barrier present in these defective lifts could become bent unexpectedly.
To prevent incidents and injuries, the company decided to issue this recall along the federal agency so more people could become aware of the dangers the 2006 through 2010 Phoenix transit buses could pose to wheelchair users.
If you own one of these vehicles or know someone who does, ensure the safety of your passengers by responding to this recall as soon as possible.
Hopefully, the company is carrying this recall campaign in a successful and proficient way to prevent injuries in the future. If you own one of these recalled models, contact the manufacturer right away and have this problem fixed as soon as possible.
