I was on the ride into work this morning on a quiet side road with no traffic and got blatantly right hooked by a school bus. I had to whip skid to avoid slamming into the side of the bus. I had seen her coming out of my peripheral vision as I approached the intersection. She didn't so much as slow down at the intersection, whipped the wheel around like she was driving a go-cart around a track, and kept hauling ass down the road. I got the plate number, but not the bus number.
I called the local school department this afternoon and reported her. They couldn't have cared less. The woman I spoke with said, "Were you injured?", I said no but explained again how close a call it was and that if it was a less experience rider or a young child, it could have been bad. So she then asked me what she would like me to do......How about your job? I said to her, "maybe you should explain to your bus drivers that they are driving 20+ ton vehicles not sports cars? Do you not take complaints about reckless bus drivers or should I just let the bus hit me next time, so you'll take this seriously?"
That was a revelation to her, but she at least agreed with me the driver was acting recklessly.
