    What is Yellow, has 6 wheels, doesn't speed, stops at all RR crossings, and yet is the most dangerous thing on the road?

    "I wonder if the SHP was scouting this bus at the time of the wreck. Actually I am not sure that their claim of cracking down on bus drivers, is true to begin with."

    I don't think it's to crack down on the bus drivers but more of the public drivers not obeying "stopped school buses" and speeding through school zones. In my opinion the public is to blame a lot of times in school bus accidents.

    I wonder if the SHP was scouting this bus at the time of the wreck. Actually I am not sure that their claim of cracking down on bus drivers, is true to begin with. Maybe it was just a publicized threat hoping to get drivers to worry that they may be under surveillance.

    “I am a very good bus driver who is strict on my children and absolutley do not put up with any junk. You don't know what we have to deal with so before you start casting stones go take the training, spend the $93 to get your bus liscense, and drive a bus for a bare minimum of a month then tell me and any other bus driver out there what your perfect plan is.” thecatsmeow67

    If this comment excludes you, great, but comparing this comment with the driving habits I see exhibited by bus drivers I encounter during my commute I tend to agree with twotimes. Also, forgive me for saying but you should work on your spelling, grammar and use of slang. I doubt it makes parents overly confident of you as someone who should be responsible for their children’s safety.


    I didn't say "all" bus drivers. I'm sure there are some good ones. In my 6 years of riding buses, my drivers always sped and drove crazy. they were always young and had bad attitudes. Maybe they don't anymore but thats how i

    " I was wondering what could have distracted a driver enough to not see a stopped/stopping school bus.
    no taco p"

    Oh I don't know how about phones, texting, makeup, reading the paper, shaving.....could have been any number of things, but I'm pretty sure 'paying attention' was not happening.

    And to hugo......the grammar, punctuation etc in thecatsmeow post is way better than much I've seen here and in fact looks pretty good

    I saw that accident this morning, and I don't think it was the bus drivers fault. There was a car under the back of the bus, and a few more behind that one. I'm not sure if it was the bus that makes daily stops there on Louisburg road or not. But as I drove past the accident, I was wondering what could have distracted a driver enough to not see a stopped/stopping school bus.

    A wreck definitely impacts a commute and many times it impacts the commute for a large number of people.

    Make sure you thank the bad drivers for your delay.

    twotimes, I take offense at your comment. I am a very good bus driver who is strict on my children and absolutley do not put up with any junk.

    I wonder why it is excepted that school buses are constantly involved in wrecks. It seems like once a week there is a school bus accident. I remember when i rode the bus and we had 18,19 yr old people with bad attitudes speeding like crazy through neighborhoods and scaring the junk out of us. Maybe they should take a look at who they are hiring to drive kids around.
