San Manuel staff to coordinate on-site safety inspections of independent motorcoaches en route from the casino
HIGHLAND, CALIFORNIA — San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino (SMIBC) personnel will work directly with California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers on Saturday, January 17 to direct charter buses to an inspection site located on the Palm Avenue bridge over the I-210 freeway in the city of Highland.
These bus safety inspections held three to four times a year are done as a part of a vehicle safety program with which charter companies making stops at SMIBC are required to comply. With utmost concern for the safety of its patrons, SMIBC has developed this partnership with the CHP as an efficient and effective means to perform multiple inspections while buses are active and in service.
It is expected that 30-40 charter buses will be designated and escorted by the CHP to the inspection site during this one-day period. CHP inspection officers will perform the inspections according to the standardized North American Uniform Out-of-Service criteria.
Since 2009, San Manuel has supported this federally funded initiative contributing to charter bus safety by creating an opportunity for passengers to disembark while inspections take place and helping them find alternative transportation should charters be placed out of service.
