    The school bus drivers are just as bad or worst than the tour bus drivers.
    The DMV needs to start cracking down on all bus drivers, some of the worst driver’s on the road, besides all the idiots texting or talking on the cell phones.

      And what information do you base your statement on? Have you ever driven a school bus or are you just running off at the mouth because you had a driver that made you behave yourself? There are more “idiots” out there in 4 wheeler’s texting or talking on cell phones- take a reality check !

    I totally agree with you Katie, That gal was/is probably one of our “problem” or “needy” children who can’t seem to follow rules. Bet ya a dollar to a donut that the crash was caused because the driver became distracted by loud and distracting behavior on the bus.

    Driving a bus is not as. Easy as driving a car I would like to see you survive one week driving bus
