U.S. Department of Transportation Orders Two Dayes Trucking, Two Dayes Transport to Shut Down

January 2, 2013 - Press Release

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has ordered Two Dayes Trucking and Two Dayes Transport, based in Murfreesboro, N.C., to immediately cease all transportation services due to a pattern of serious safety violations that pose an imminent hazard to public safety.

After a thorough review, agency investigators found the companies, which generally transport recycled steel and roofing shingles, and two of their drivers, had demonstrated substantial and flagrant disregard for federal requirements for vehicle maintenance and repair, driver hours of service, qualifications of drivers, and controlled substance and alcohol use.

“Safety is not optional if you want to operate a truck on our nation’s roadways,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “We will always take action to protect the safety of the traveling public.”

An investigation following a fatal crash involving Two Dayes Trucking in Murfreesboro on Nov. 12, 2012, determined that the company was operating under a revoked DOT registration and that the company had reincarnated as Two Dayes Transport. Both Two Dayes Trucking and Two Dayes Transport were found to have combined operations that consistently displayed a blatant disregard for vital safety regulations.

“Safety is our number one priority,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne Ferro. “If a company’s operations put the lives of the public at risk, we will do everything in our power to shut it down.”
