South Dakota Trucking Company Agrees to Insurance Decree

May 12, 2009

A Sioux Falls, S.D., trucking company and the federal transportation secretary have reached an agreement that will end a federal court case.

Action Carrier Inc. was ordered in November to keep its rigs off the roads because it wasn’t covered by liability insurance.

The order was in response to a request from the transportation secretary for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the motor carrier.

The company already was on probation because of earlier violations.

According to court documents, Action Carrier has signed a consent decree that prohibits it from operating without insurance and authority from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

A federal judge has approved the agreement.
