BiffDangler: Was the commuter bus driving in the emergency lane?
genepool lifeboat: BiffDangler: Was the commuter bus driving in the emergency lane?I think that is a bus lane. _My question is why wasn't the school bus also using it?_Not enough info from just that video snippet. I didn't notice if the school bus had its signal on either.
damageddude: Having driven or commuted via bus many times on that road over the last decade:A lot of drivers on Route 9 don't understand the concept of pulling onto the shoulder to turn right, even if the white solid line angles right to indicate that you should exit via the shoulder.
Revek: School bus didn't use a blinker. Other bus looked to be hauling ass.
lewismarktwo: Those people being interviewed are morans.
LoneVVolf: So the school bus driver turns inftont of a municipal bus (traveling in the designated bus lane) without signaling or checking her mirrors, and the municipal driver gets citations for unsafe driving? Is there ANY justification for that other than "ohmygodforthechildrenz!"?
Zombalupagus: I think the ultimate fault lies in whoever thought it would be a good idea to make a road where people need to make a right turn from the second lane of traffic across a lane potentially going straight.
damageddude: Signs state that right turns are permitted from shoulder at all times.A lot of drivers on Route 9 don't understand the concept of pulling onto the shoulder to turn right, even if the white solid line angles right to indicate that you should exit via the shoulder.
evilsofa: The commuter bus driver screamed before he hit the school bus. How very un-Russian. If you have time to scream before impact, you're not doing your job properly.
Ghastly: Watch Video: School bus is clearly at fault. Not driving in the bus lane, Did not signal before turning.Listen To News Report: ZOMG!!! Commuter bus driver totally should be strung up by his balls. WHAT IF THERE WERE KIDS ON THE SCHOOL BUS!?!?!?!?!???!?!?
evilsofa: The school bus driver was to blame for not staying in the shoulder lane. It was legal for him to do so, and had he done so there would have been no problem. By pulling into the right lane, he was indicating to traffic behind him that he was not going to turn right at the next intersection. Look at the video again: the school bus turns from the right lane directly into the driveway without using the shoulder, at a time when it is legal to use the shoulder. The school bus driver is to blame, and is a farking idiot besides.
Zombalupagus: While both drivers share some of the blame I think the ultimate fault lies in whoever thought it would be a good idea to make a road where people need to make a right turn from the second lane of traffic across a lane potentially going straight. That's just f***ing retarded./also I am amazed that the school bus driver was not held accountable in any way
