Buses are ubiquitous in Los Angeles. They bring millions of children to and from school every day, but they are a significant part of our public transportation network. They are an affordable mode of transportation that keeps individual vehicles off the roads, reducing our city’s carbon footprint.
Overall, they have a very positive impact on our city, but when bus accidents happen, they are often quite devastating. Buses are large, heavy vehicles that can do some severe damage to anyone involved in a bus accident.
What Makes Buses Dangerous?
Most buses do not offer seat belts, which means that passengers will not be secured in the event of a collision.
Bus drivers are often driving with poor visibility. The sheer size of buses means that drivers are not afforded a large amount of visibility. Bus blind-spots are massive and can be incredibly dangerous.
Buses often weigh more than 10,000 pounds, which means any rolling accident will likely result in a collapsed roof.
Driver fatigue is a growing problem. Driving while sleep-deprived slows reaction times and negatively affects judgment.
