This is why you always look in your right mirror BEFORE moving your bus! Perhaps his mirrors werent adjusted properly, I dont know. Being a bus driver 14 years accident free, I always make sure that my mirrors are adjusted before I even move my bus. There are too many mistakes of driver negligence out there. Our system just had a fatality last week that could have been avoided!

Accident can happy to anybody any time.

In a split second of distraction you could be part of a major disaster.

Humans will always be humans and never be perfect, no matter how much training they give us.
