All across the United States people of all ages ride the bus everyday as their means of transportation to get to school, work, and home. A bus is usually considered to be a common carrier, which means that the driver is expected to act responsibly and protect the passengers. Unfortunately, many bus drivers do not always operate their vehicles with the utmost degree of care, which places innocent people in danger for serious bus accident injuries. Not only are bus passengers at risk for injuries, but pedestrians, and the drivers and passengers of other vehicles as well.
