Why Bus Accidents Happen in California
Buses have no seat belts. Because of the size of the bus, the driver has limited visibility. Passenger movement and noise can be distracting to the driver. Buses drive in the most populated areas of Southern California cities and along curbs where bicyclists ride and pedestrians cross. These circumstances can lead to disaster.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, two-thirds of all bus accidents involve a collision with another vehicle, while one-third involves pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents.
When larger, heavier buses collide with smaller, lighter passenger cars, bicycles or pedestrians, the results can be tragic.
Bus drivers, and the companies they work for, have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner. Yet unsafe driving, fatigue and poor bus maintenance inexcusably contribute to serious bus accidents.
