Hanley, who started his career driving a bus in Brooklyn in the 1970s, cited a case in 2004 where a driver in Oregon was killed when her bus rolled over her after she didn’t properly set her brake. She was running behind schedule and was racing to get to a bathroom, according to news reports.

Hell on wheels

It's Virtually impossible to communicate to the world exactly what some TriMet drivers have to put up with during heavy downpours at night driving a TriMet antique.

These old buses, with windshield wipers that can drive you insane. They are so noisy and clunky that when you hit a red light you have to turn them off, or you have to keep adjusting the speed. 

And the noise, the bus is rattling like a something you would see in a horror movie.

The rain is leaking through the body. 

The mirrors and windows are so full of water that forms into tiny little balls, you make turns 'blind" because you can't see anything out there!

The windows are fogged because the defrosters are useless.


You can't even see where you are going never mind actually attempt to call the stops!
(watch out though, a TriMet spy may be on board)

The seat so uncomfortable, your back is hurting you.


It really is hell on wheels. 

(Wait till they make us put chains on without any snow)

Attention all Oregon state taxpayers

Through our tax system, the State of Oregon gives each tax-paying Oregonian a $50 gift. But you can't keep it. Instead, you must either pay it back in state taxes -- or donate it to a qualified political campaign or cause.

To put it another way: By donating $50 to a political campaign of your choice, you can reduce your taxes or increase your refund by that same $50 (assuming you pay at least $50 in taxes). That's right: it's a full 100% credit, not a deduction. Better yet, if you are married, the state allows a $100 credit. I know that's small change for the Koch brothers, but it's an opportunity for the rest of us to have our say too.
