We all know Allen Brady – he’s the mentally challenged side-kick of Andy Esquivel who helped Andy con his mother Georgia Brady out of $50,000 and then instead of helping his mother press charges, worked diligently to help Andy avoid responsibility.
Allen, as we all know, spent most of his career driving buses for his parent’s company Serv-a-Bus. Well, we’ve just learned (sorry we’re a bit late on this) that Serve-a-Bus and Allen’s parents were forced out of business by the US Department of Transportation in 2013 because they were deemed a threat to public safety.
“Safety is our top priority and we will not tolerate this kind of callous disregard for public safety by any transportation provider,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “These violations are especially egregious considering the company was transporting students despite being ordered to stop all operations.”
“There is no place on our highways and roads for bus and truck companies and commercial drivers that ignore safety and put the public at needless risk,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro. “FMCSA personnel across the country will continue to demand that drivers, vehicles, and companies comply with vital safety regulations that protect the motoring public.”
This is a sad story and I hate to be the one piling on, but frankly it’s instructive since the lack of attention to detail that sank this company is the same characteristic that continues to inspire Allen Brady to defend a known criminal who defrauded his own mother.
