Orlando, Fla.—Greater Orlando Limousine Association (GOLA) members took some useful notes on December 19 when Compliance Specialist Marc Knolt of Admin 2000 came by to lead an eye-opening seminar on DOT compliance.

Knolt explained that with the recent deaths and accidents of the past year, federal regulators have been pushing states to start enforcing existing laws that many operators did not even know existed.

“A lot of people think that as long as they’re good to go with the city, that that’s all they need to do,” says Knolt. As he explains, though, operators now need to keep up with these newly-enforced state and federal regulations. Knolt made clear on many points, including that federal regulations apply to all operators as passenger carriers—even those whose chauffeurs don’t cross between state borders.

“It’s a lot of little things that could add up to big things,” says GOLA President Cliff Wright of Royal Coach and Limousine about the wide scope of DOT criteria touched on in the seminar.
