What an idiot. HOW can you think you can turn left in front of a vehicle ON YOUR LEFT, going the SAME direction you are?

You'd think that he'd give a little extra consideration to a school bus. I'm glad to hear that everyone is O.K.

I see women talking on cell phones do it all the time.

Funny you say that because this wasn't a woman driver...it was a man.

Sorry, but your sexist comment doesn't hold water since it was a man named CARL that caused the accident.

You're not the sharpest tack in the box. I never said a woman caused the accident. I simply stated what I see a lot of. Women doing dumb things while attempting to drive while talking on a cell phone.

I've seen plenty of women doing dumb things minus the cell phone!!! Anyone else wondering about all these school bus accidents lately? Hmmm...

Here is another example of a driver (male OR female) just so oblivious to thier surroundings. Thinking they can just drive where ever, turn where ever, stop where ever, just because they are on the road.

And that this idiot tried to turn left in front of a school bus. Every one thinks they have the right to drive any way they like just because they are on the road. No consideration to the other motorists.

I bet Carl was either on his cell or his hand was too busy in his lap.
Idiot.
Idiot.
Idiot.

I'm quite sharp, thank you. This accident wasn't caused by a woman, however you DID post it on a forum where the discussion is involving an accident caused by a male. Why bother to even bring it up since it had nothing to do with the topic at hand? I don't know, maybe because you're sexist?

As far as cell phones are concerned, both men and woman are guilty of driving while talking, so why must people like you say that only women do it?

AMEN!!!!! Thanksfully noone was hurt and could that be due to the bus driver clearing being in control of what was around her.

I never said that either. You really have a mental problem, don't you? If I said I saw a lot of dogs today, that doesn't mean I didn't see any cats. If I said gas costs too much, that doesn't mean I didn't buy any. If I said I read a lot of intelligent posts today, that doesn't mean I didn't read any dumb ones like yours.

Quit filling in the blanks. And I still see a lot of women do dumb things while driving and talking on a cell phone. Go away.

Yes, "Thanksfully" "noone" (whatever that is, or do you mean "no one") was hurt. All thanks to the bus driver "clearing being in control". Take a breathalyzer test before you drive.

i was at an intersection as a bus was coming from my left, the driver had the 4 -ways on, but the sun was shining on the left one and i couldnt see it blinking, to me i thought the bus was making a right turn(small intersection)so i pulled out to give the bus room to turn. that is when i could see the other turn signal flashing. the bus had its 4-ways on for no ? reason. lucky the bus stoped, the driver was very mad. my fault? ya had to be there! ive been driving truck since the 70's, so things do happen by ACCIDENT.

You are full of compliments, aren't you?

I have just the same right to post on these forums as you do, so you have no right to ask me to leave.

I have no mental problems, I read what you posted and that was my take on what you wrote. You may have thought you were saying it one thing, but I took it as another. Simple as that. That is the problem with the Internet...you may mean one thing, but it can be taken a few different ways. Such as you calling my posts dumb, however there was at least one other poster on this forum who agreed with what I was saying.

Women may do stupid things while driving, but men do it too.

I was thinking along the same lines. Was this guy drinking or on drugs? Or maybe he needs glasses to see right.

THIS IS A BLOG ON AN ARTICLE IN THE MORNING CALL, NOT SOME DUMB TIT FOR TAT BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE WHO OBVIOUSLY NEED MORE THINGS TO DO THAN SIT ON MCALL.COM
TO SUM THINGS UP, THE DRIVER MADE A CARELESS MOVE. ALL THE CHILDREN WERE SAFE AND NO ONE WAS HURT.. END OF STORY.
