ABA Advises Members to Keep Galaxy Note 7 Phones Powered Down on Motorcoaches

In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, the ABA strongly advises members to remind passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board motorcoaches and not to stow them in luggage under the motorcoach. While the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has not yet issued an advisory like the Federal Aviation Administration for aircraft regarding the Galaxy Note 7, ABA feels this is an important safety issue for our members and our industry.
