The owner of and driver for a two-truck carrier from Las Vegas has been shut down by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for several violations.

The FMCSA declared Nevada-licensed commercial driver Mamadou Diaby to be an imminent hazard to public safety and has ordered him not to operate any commercial motor vehicle in interstate commerce.  Diaby was served the federal order Jan. 3, shutting down his 4 U Logistics, Inc.

According to a statement from the FMCSA, on Dec. 12, Diaby was operating a 4 U Logistics tractor-trailer en route from Missouri to Colorado and was seen driving erratically. He was stopped by Kansas Highway Patrol Officers and failed a field sobriety test, recording a significantly elevated blood alcohol level. Officers later found opened alcoholic beverage containers in a cooler next to the driver’s seat.

Also during the Dec. 12 stop, officers discovered Diaby’s trucking company, 4 U Logistics, 11 days earlier, had been ordered by FMCSA to cease all commercial transportation operations. The company had received an unsatisfactory safety rating following a comprehensive investigation.

Less than a week earlier, on Dec. 6, Diaby was stopped in Ohio for a roadside safety inspection while operating a 4 U Logistics tractor-trailer. Ohio State Highway Patrol Officers cited Diaby for records-of-duty status violations and for violating the FMCSA Dec. 1 order to cease all operations.

In addition, Diaby was previously convicted in the Spring of 2018 of having one or more open alcoholic beverage containers in his truck cab.
