I think it’s time to collate the bus crash stories. They seem to be multiplying worldwide. We know they franchise psyOp stories – strange in a world of worldwide internet access – so it’s easy to see patterns. Perhaps the repetitive nature helps reinforce the fear.

This simple google search shows that they’re going into overdrive on bus crash stories.

From what I know, bus drivers aren’t even half as regulated as truck drivers, yet they carry people, and often lots of them. Perhaps a worldwide campaign to make people at least aware of this issue, including the fact buses are generally the cheapest form of transportation due to their low wages and low maintenance/regulation?
