Borough officials said there are weight restrictions on most borough roads that don't allow vehicles weighing more than 15,000 pounds.

Surely the money she saves the school is more than the road repair.

/drive the short bus, genius

People park on the street in my neighborhood.

I sure as hell wouldn't want someone parking a school bus on the street here.
 
2013-02-13 12:10:23 PM  
Why can't she park her bus with all the other ones?  I know because she then has to get up earlier to drive to the bus depot.  This is about her laziness not saving the district money.

There are a lot of things that can save money.  Doesn't mean they're legal.

Yes, but it saves the school district money and it costs the borough money. They're two different entities.

fines can be given unless vehicles over the limit of 7 1/2 tons are using the roads to pick up children or make deliveries on those roads.

Oh, so it's okay to drive on the road multiple times every school day to pick up/drop off kids, but parking the bus on the road is going to destroy it?  I sense malarkey.

Fun Fact: The town was completely dry up until a few years ago.  They offered one liquor liscense on some sort of raffle system.  None of the bars won.  None of the dinner places won.  Paul's Pancake Barn won.  So now they serve pancakes and you can buy beer in the side room.

Here's a fun experiment you can do in your own home!

Lie down on the floor. Have a fat person lie down next to you. Have the fat person roll onto, and then over you. After that, have the fat person lie down on top of you and stay there. Which was more unpleasant?

Do you understand the difference now?

I had a neighbor across the street who would park her cheese wagon in her driveway.  It wasn't pretty but it made it easier to give directions.

It was a regular asphalt driveway and I don't think it did any damage.

I live very close to a elementary school so I'm getting a kick out of this thread. No not really those assholes don't realize that slamming a huge dumpster down every single morning at 6am is annoying as fark. Anyways I didn't read the article and just wanted to mention that growing up the first bus driver for our road parked the bus at his house,which was literally a 5 minute walk up the road. He was awesome,you could never understand what he was saying unless he got mad,he was my best friends grandpa and I still couldn't understand him except when he was mad.
/Boring,rambling story sis.
 
2013-02-13 01:23:28 PM  
The bus (and other heavy vehicles) can travel on the roads if they are carrying children or making deliveries.

Well, isn't the bus just delivering its driver home each night?

I live in a rural/suburban part of PA, not near where this story is from, but in NE PA (Luzerne County). I live on the same road as the bus garage that has the contract for my school district and I never really gave it much thought until now. A few points come to mind now that I think about it. There's at least two drivers on my road that take their buses home and they live probably within 2-3 minutes of the garage, so for them, it is not much of a time saver at all. The garage itself only has a small parking lot in front for staff vehicles. It is so small in fact, that some vehicles have to be parked on the shoulder across the road from the garage. I think if every driver had to drive to the garage to get their bus, there would be no place to put their vehicles. There is a field behind the garage where the buses are all kept when school is out. I guess there is somewhere between 20-30 buses and there is very little room left over when they are all there.There is also only one entrance/exit. So if all of the buses were kept there every day, the amount of time spent just getting them in/out/maneuvered would become a cost factor. So based on all of this I think it is a fair assumption that the owner(s) of the bus company in my district probably encourage their drivers to take the buses home as long as they have the room to park them.

But then again, other parts of PA sometimes feel like different planets compared to the part I live in.

What kind of sorry road system do they have ? There are many miles of roads in all of  KY,WV, to Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi that can handle the weight of a school bus  but theses road can not handle the weight.  Guess they should move to Alabama at least the bus can take the children to and from school !

Well, Alabama children do weigh more than most children, so the roads need to be able to handle extra weight.

Non-snarky answer: winter plays hell with roads. Freeze-thaw-freeze-thaw-freeze-thaw tears them up.

That's a great savings for both parties.  Hence mutually beneficial.  Her motives mean little when you are objective.  Try it sometime.

THIS!  If not for HOA rules that force all houses to look the same, we wouldn't have drunks blundering into the wrong homes late at night.  Fewer people would get shot.  Drew could lay off a few admins.
