damn... just talking about head-on collisions today because we saw one almost happen... so damn scary... you can be doing everything right and some idiot comes along and drives on the wrong side of the road...
We must, of course, ban bus travel. For the children.
Witnesses say brakes on bus were smoking and on fire.
Bus direction was down a steep, dark and winding road.
KTLA video shows multiple yellow tarps on and off the road.
There is nothing left of the truck it hit.
“We must, of course, ban bus travel. For the children.”
No no no.
Just limit buses to 7 passengers (in NY) and 10 passengers elsewhere.
And of course, background checks to purchase diesel fuel.
Prayers for all. This is terrible!
Assault Busses such as this should be limited to Ten Seats, including the Driver.
In New York, the legal limit should be limited to no more than Seven Seats. If the Bus is equipped with Ten Seats, Three of those Seats must remain unoccupied at all times. Police will be required to stop these Busses randomly to be sure the Seating Requirement is followed.
That is the only way lives will be saved.
Prayers for the Victims of this tragedy.
Union operated bus line. Call it what it is: another mass murder by the left.
Is it TIME yet?
ok we need BUS CONTROL - for the children.
“Eleven others are described as walking wounded.
Are the walking wounded anything like the Walkers?
Check this video out:
Ban Public Transportation!!
Prayers up for those involved.
I like the way you think.
thanks a lot!
please, a warning next time....as soon as I noticed headlights in opposite direction, I sensed it coming
Wetbacks, registered Democrats or decent people?
Article doesnt say so I dont know whether to give a shi’ite or not.
A TOUR BUS FROM Tijuana to Mentone seems odd. What makes a bus a TOUR BUS? The article says officials from the Mexican consulate are there.
Yes ban all tour busses even if it saves one life.
not to worry...first thing this AM ...
I wonder if Obama is going to put restrictions on buses? Or maybe all automotive transportation. After all, about 45,000 a year are killed on our highways each year.
