Multiple news agencies have revealed recently that Navistar has issued a recall announcement that is related to certain models of school buses posing injury hazards to passengers.
According to the official recall rundown, all units of the 2007, 2009 and 2011 IC CESB School Buses manufactured by Navistar were equipped with defective wheelchair lifts that could represent a risk to passengers who are being suspended by the mechanism while occupying a wheelchair. The firm responsible for the manufacturing of these lifts has stated that the Century-2 and Vista-2 devices could experience a misalignment as a result of frequent use. If this happens while the platform is being raised or lowered, the wheelchair could roll and the wheelchair’s occupant could fall, leading to an injury.
To avoid incidents and maintain passengers safe, the school bus manufacturer has decided to issue this recall alert immediately.
Hopefully, school bus owners are checking their vehicles for the recalled models at once. Any of my colleagues and I would be extremely saddened to learn that someone was injured while these recalled wheelchair lifts were in use.
I urge you to contact the manufacturer at once and schedule a visit to a Braun dealer to have these defective mechanisms repaired as soon as possible. Act fast and ensure the safety of the students being transported by your school bus by responding to this recall announcement at once.
