    As long as school bus drivers are paid minimum wage, you'll get minimum wage drivers.

    Bonita is right about safety. Since we already know NC drivers are just going to become even more dangerous than they already are, each seat on these buses should be equipped with front and side airbags.

    I want to see the bus drivers have better qualifications, and also, the drivers pay attention as well. There have been too many accidents around the country lately...these bus drivers are carrying precious cargo.

    From the picture, it looks like the bus hit a vehicle. Who do you want to get tough on?

    Hopefully none of the children were traumatized by this event. Hope all involved are okay. It's time to get even tougher on school bus safety.
