    Then there’s the people who tailgate me in playground zones, hoping I’ll speed up.
    I’d love to see one of them tailgate me, then speed up and pass me in the playground zone … in front of a cop.

    Happened to me one morning on the way to work. The road widened into 2 lanes, the guy passed me and the cop pinged him with a radar gun. I know who got to work the fastest that morning !!

    remember the viral news story about the woman who drove down the sidewalk to pass a schoolbus? still shaking my head in awe of that woman’s enormous witlessness.

    especially if the governor and his staff thought it might be a good idea to shut down a major bridge for a “traffic study.”

    One of the things to be said for where I presently live is that the school bus drivers actually pull over to let the line of cars behind them get by.

    Amazing.

    Why are bus drivers exempt from obeying the speed limit?
    I have NEVER in my life seen a school bus obey the 15mph school zone speed limit. Granted, 95% of all other cars are the same, but school buses seem to be the fastest.

    Agreed. I once lived in an area where there were two steep hills, both downhill from my home, with a small flat land area between them. I routinely would crest the first hill and have a school bus stopped at the pasture below. The school bus refused to clear traffic behind and then would go on their way, only to stop at the bottom of the second hill for a R-R crossing before stopping again for another stop. Again never clearing traffic. After about two weeks of this one winter I finally called the bus garage and complained. I was told the driver could not clear traffic because of the geography. I asked the person if they ever drove that area, “No, I don’t live out there.” To which I replied that the person didn’t’ have a clue regarding the geography or the whole wide shoulder of the road. After a little more bickering I finally told the person I was talking to that if I got rear-ended because the bus driver refused to clear traffic as they are supposed to do, not by law but by local school district rules, then I would be suing the school district. “You cant do that.” I informed them that yes I could because by refusing to clear traffic their driver was deliberately endangering the motoring public AND the children on the school bus.
    .
    Before anybody jumps on me about it being the fault of the driver who rear-ended me, think about this, the bus stops, in an area obstructed from long distance view and cars back up behind them. They stop again in another area obstructed from clear view by the second hill and more cars back up. Then WHAM! Someone not aware of the preventable danger crests the hill, panics and locks up their brakes (this was before ABS was common). Yes the bus driver would be a major contributor to the accident.
    .
    The bus driver ALWAYS cleared traffic after that argument with the idiot at the bus garage. Hmmm….I wonder ………

    “especially if the governor and his staff thought it might be a good idea to shut down a major bridge for a “traffic study.”
    .
    Now was that really necessary? Nobody else was crass enough to make a politically tinged comment.
