New Jersey inspections get two tour buses off the road

    Random bus inspections in Atlantic City yesterday found nine violations and turned up two buses that had to be taken out of service.

    The inspections by the Motor Vehicle Commission Commercial Bus Inspection and Investigation Unit are a regular occurrence and have been stepped up after two buses were involved in fatal crashes last month.

    The two buses taken out of service yesterday, as the Star-Ledger reports, had holes. One in the frame, one in the brake lining. Four of the 15 randomly inspected buses passed.
