76 years old and driving a school bus? I was grateful when my 77 year old mother decided that it was no longer safe for her to be behind the wheel of her Dodge Omni, and this guy is driving a bus????

They are there. They just happen to live their lives like the respectable human beings they are instead of city scum that give whites, blacks or latinos a bad name.

No 76 year old should be driving kids in a school bus. There needs to be a cutoff age, honestly!

76 freak*n years old and still driving a school bus! I'm glad my children aren't on that bus. What is Parkland thinking? I'm sure they are going to have great responses from the parents involved. I hope the lady driving the bike is okay.

On the other hand, maybe this guy can drive down Airport Road during evening rush hour and mow down the moron that insists on riding his bike in the right hand lane of traffic.

No actually I'm not, I know how rude and idiotic people can be when it comes to race and how every thread seems to turn to it. But I still don't see the point of why she said what she did. There was no need for it, but you won't understand what I am trying to say because you jumped right in there too. Maybe harmless fun on your part, but it's just not needed according to me. Maybe I'm old fashioned for having some respect - sorry!

Here in Macungie the bike riders are all over the roads. I will never understand why they are on the roads when there is a bike path next to them that they do not use. They can be a hazard to the road. RIDE ON BIKE PATHS.

I'm with ya! It's pathetic. It's sad. And soon all of America will be happy with our new civil war. Island girl unfortunately is not an island at all.

I can hear the strategy in court now, he will blame it on Rock and Roll and the Song by Manfred Mann, "Blinded by the light" which made him do it!

I find it amazing that everyone is jumping on the statement posted by Island Girl and not complaining about the ageism that is being thrown about. Perhaps this man had an excellent driving record; better than some half his age. Additionally, I must fight sun glare each morning as I get on the ramp for 22. It isn't a fake excuse, trust me.
