National Transportation Safety Board Safety Recommendation, H-05-10 and -11

These safety recommendations, addressed to Mr. John Russell, Chief Executive Officer, Neoplan USA Corporation, address inspections of motorcoach passenger seating anchorage points and performance standards for motorcoach passenger seating anchorages. The National Transportation Safety Board makes the following safety recommendations to Neoplan USA Corporation: (H-05-10) Include information in your motorcoach owner's and maintenance manuals that fully informs owners of the necessity of, and proper procedures for, checking passenger seat anchorage securement through routine inspections; and (H-05-11) Until the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration develops performance standards for passenger seat anchorages in motorcoaches, substantially increase the load capacity of the passenger seat anchor systems in your newly manufactured motorcoaches so that the seats will not become detached during frontal impact collisions, side impact collisions, rear impact collisions, and rollovers.
