Trucking Company Dispatcher Fined in Hours-of-Service Case
March 25, 2002
Gary Chamberlain, the chief dispatcher and a driver for Northern Gas Transport, Inc. (NGT), of Lyndonville, VT, was fined $1,000 by a U.S. District Court judge in Burlington, VT, for helping NGT conceal records which disclosed that NGT drivers were driving in excess of hours permitted. As a truck driver, Chamberlain falsified his own logs and as dispatcher, forced drivers to drive beyond the permissible time limits. The remaining defendants in this case, NGT and two of its other officials, will be sentenced April 19, 2002.
