I hope all involved are ok. But if you take a stroll through Fishersville,( Teverton ) to be exact. You will see SPEEDING buses. They fly! They will cut you off. And YES there are children on the buses when this happens! And yes we have complained many times to the bus garage and nothing happens.

The fact that you'd bother calling the garage is laughable (if that's even true). You need to call the school officials that pay these guys.

Complain to the superintendent and the school board. Better, yet, video one of them speeding and take that to the school board. I wish you luck.

Speeding school buses? Really? Aren't they like Unicorns? Any school bus I've seen seems to delight in going as slowly as possible. I once got in front of a school bus and drove well under the speed limit just to piss off the driver. Felt good.

Who planned this route? UPS drivers don't even like to turn left, much less make a U-turn.
U-turn in morning rush hour can't be a good idea.(Of course, this does not excuse the driver.)

I thought all buses had governors that prevented them from speeding.

Yep, Same thing is going to happen on Howardsville Tnpk in Stuarts Draft, at the corner of said road and Vance Lane. A school bus stops and backs up in the main road and turns around to go back towards the Draft. It is not legal to back up at anytime on a state road, look it up. I have called to complain but nothing is even done. All the driver as to do is go all the way down Vance Lane and turn around and drive back up and pull out on Howardsville Tnpk, No problems and no none legal moves. It is not legal and one day an accident will happen. All because a drive is to lazy to go to the end of a .20 mile of a road to turn around, but rather turn around on a major road and stop traffic. Lets see if Mr Landes does anything about this, before another crash.
