    State and local safety enforcement agencies across the country completed two weeks of inspections as part of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's annual Passenger Carrier Strike Force sweeps.

    Thousands of motorcoach, charter bus and other passenger carrier vehicles underwent inspections at various popular travel destinations, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood said in an Aug. 31 press release. The sweeps ran from Aug. 23 to Sept. 4. Throughout the year, FMCSA also performs roadside safety inspections of commercial buses on a daily basis, as well as strike force sweeps on household goods movers and drug and alcohol compliance.
