The Immense Danger of Bus Accidents
The buses that ferry us from place to place are massive, heavy vehicles that carry many passengers. Because of their size and bulk, any ensuing accidents are likely to be extremely dangerous accidents. There are, however, other factors that make bus accidents both more likely and more dangerous, including:
- Buses rarely have seat belts to protect their passengers from the impact of accidents. This absence of seat belts also means that passengers are more likely to be thrown around the bus when an accident occurs.
- Buses must enter and exit traffic frequently, which increases the risk of accidents happening.
- Buses have a higher center of gravity that leaves them more prone to life-threatening rollovers.
- Bus drivers experience larger blind spots around their buses and require longer stopping distances than other motorists do, which can lead to life-threatening accidents.
Bus drivers are, nevertheless, professional drivers who have the responsibility of safely accommodating for all these risks and for transporting their passengers safely through traffic.
