    You can thank government regulations for this.


    A local bus driver in Bethlehem PA, saw a wheelchair bound person, that she knew wanted on the bus, about 40' from the bus stop, so she stopped anyway, even though she shouldn't have, and the car behind the bus hit it.

    The car driver sued the bus company and won. So now you must be within 5' of the bus stop or they will drive past you no matter what.

    OMG, Two Thumbs; that's horrible.

    What bullshit is going on these days.

    I hope the press attention gets the gentleman his job back (or an offer of another).

    Rehired FTW!

    NY bus driver, fired for aiding police, is rehired - WSJ.com

    He's also mulling over other offers which arose due to the publicity.
