Farce-Side: Good jorb subby...and in before "we should ban busses".


Didnt RTFS did ya? Busses are already banned on that road. Its a bus free zone. And of course that's where this tragedy happened. In yet another "safe zone" full of easy bridges.

The only actual answer that will solve the problem is to allow busses everywhere. On roads with low ceilings, inside churches, at the skate park. Etc. Sure at first there maqy be a few problems but after 10 or 11 busses plow into a bridge at 90 MPH it'll come down and can be replaced with something bus proof. And once everything is bus proof we'll be safe.

We should obviously ban tall vehicles. After all, no-one NEEDS a vehicle more than seven feet tall.
