Ride the Ducks of Seattle UTC Hearings Reported Exclusively by Buell Realtime Reporting
April 29, 2016
Buell Realtime Reporting has held the exclusive contract to report all proceedings brought before the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) since 2011. The UTC protects consumers by regulating rates and services involving utility and transportation companies operating within the State of Washington.
The Commission recently investigated the high-profile Ride the Ducks of Seattle case that involved multiple fatalities and serious injuries that occurred in a collision between a Ride the Ducks vehicle and a charter bus on the Aurora Bridge. The UTC immediately suspended the popular amphibious vehicles from operation until the fleet of vehicles could be inspected and the safety of passengers could be assured. Buell Realtime was responsible for reporting multiple hearings that were conducted throughout the UTC’s investigation, during which Ride the Ducks of Seattle admitted to 463 safety violations and agreed to pay $308,000 in penalties.
