Neither of them were cited? Huh? Somebody did something wrong. If it was my kid on that bus, someone would have a bloody nose.

Tart cart drivers aren't so swift. We've had several near misses around here with the damn things. They do some pretty stupid things.

They hire anyone to drive buses. which is pretty sad because they are driving your kids around. maybe you should follow the bus that takes your kid to school and watch how they drive. ive seen it first hand in that area---they cannot drive-make horrible driving errors. The drivers put your childs lives in danger(as seen here).

Many bus drivers are very concientious and careful drivers. People drive like idiots around school buses because they don't want to be caught behind the red lights. This puts the drivers into dangerous situations.

That being said - bus drivers make almost no money. In some cases, you get what you pay for. In order to find enough competent bus drivers, the companies would have to pay a salary that someone could live on. That would mean raising taxes, and bus safety isn't that important to the average tax payer.

If you are driving a school bus you have to be so, so careful not to crash into dump trucks.
I used to drive a school bus.
It would get so boring that sometimes while driving it I would play little games.
One would be where I would see how long I could drive with my eyes closed.
Hey, at least it made the day go quicker.
I also had vodka in my thermos.
