School Bus Drivers Are The Biggest A-Holes

Y’all ever notice this? I guess because they carry a bunch of kids they think they can do whatever they want.

I’ve nearly been hit by them on several occasions, for they run red lights, ignore right-of-way rules, and even some basic traffic laws. The former two are especially worse when there’s a group of buses. The whole line will go through red lights like a funeral procession, and cut off any car they can, as if they have to maintain a chain of buses.

Basically, I’m tired of them acting like they own the roads.

There are more extreme cases of course. A year or two ago there was a massive accident on a major highway near me, where a school bus missed an exit and decided it would be okay to make a U-turn when the median opened up. This major highway has three-four lanes on either side, mind you, and he just cut from the right most lane to the left, slowed down to a crawl and began to turn his big old bus to the other highway, effectively taking up at least two lanes in the side he was moving out of and likely would have taken up two or three on the other side if he didn’t get slammed into by a dump truck, who couldn’t slow down in time to stop for the random bus turning into the middle of the highway.

And right away, people were blaming the dump truck, who did absolutely nothing wrong.

To me, driving like this is a serious problem. Having such an “I am important cuz I carry kids, so yield to me” attitude is so dangerous. How about they just drive like everyone else, or rather, like regular safe drivers, and they’ll get your kids safely to where they need to be, almost guaranteed. Or at least I’ll get to where I’m going safely, since I won’t have to worry about being cut off all the time.

God dang jerk-offs.
