    All buses, including school buses, in Durham should a some sort of speed control that prevents them from going 50 mph in a residential neighborhood where the speed limit is only 25.

    Smart! Durham is trying to get rid of their ghetto image. But if you ask the ghetto to design your bus, won't the bus take on a ghetto design? In this case, and many like it, change needs to be forced down people's throats. But as long as George Jefferson is mayor, it will never change.

    Good idea scubagirl, unfortunately the incidents that have injured people riding data buses have occurred from within them and not from outside the buses. You couldn't drag me on a data bus.
