In addition, federal investigators found that Bar D Bar Trucking had continued to allow Gregory Davis to operate a commercial vehicle despite Davis not possessing a valid commercial driver's license (CDL) and subject to a lifetime CDL disqualification.
Bar D Bar Trucking's continued use of unsafe vehicles and its failure to adequately oversee its drivers to ensure compliance with federal safety regulations substantially increases the likelihood of serious harm to its drivers and to the motoring public.
