Federal Bureaucrats Shut Down Alabama Business

The company has 17 trucks and 30 employees. Two of the trucks apparently had a defective tire on them when inspected, and the federal government cited the company and sent a letter demanding a “Plan of Corrective Action.”
The letter was sent by regular mail, and was not received. Getting no response from the business owner, the Feds shut down the company.
The letter wasn’t even certified. Given that a company and livelihoods were at stake this seems the absolute minimum the government should have to do. This is putting aside the fact that somehow the federal government has the legal authority to just close up a company because of two defective tires.
Do you think that a larger company, one with connections at the statehouse or Washington DC would ever have these kinds of problems. Would a company who’s executives bundled money to the right politicians have to deal with such troubles?
The simple answer is, no.
