driving a school bus at 76... should not be allowed. And, I'm a cyclist...always on back country roads, but every now and then when it's unavoidable to be on a road with a little more traffic, it's sometimes scary. Share the roads, people...it's the law! Don't pass without enough room, then cut us off...please! Don't honk at us, or scream obscenities... please!

I agree with you, but I generally feel that 76 seems waaaay too old to have the lives of children and other on the road in your hands.

I donít drive bus. I know that every commercial driverís license including bus drivers must pass a physical every two years. Bus drivers must take up dated driving course every so often. What about the younger people that are in an accident. Are you going to say that that age can not drive because someone had an accident at that age? People are living longer and some people still can drive when they get older and do it very well. Accidents should not happen but sometimes it will happen no madder what we do. Just be careful and watch out for others. We are all out here to share the roads.

Pa law states that you "should be in control of your vehicle at all times".
MEANING, there is no acceptable excuse for this type of crash.

My children would never be allowed to ride on a school bus with someone driving who is so near to the grave.
