Not as green as I might be cabbage looking!
SCHOOL bus drivers scare the socks off me most of the time; my kids are fortunate in that they have a good one, I know him and have watched him handle the bus. Others, though, that come through before he does are downright deadly! One turns on his brights EVERY MORNING so he can maintain his speed and still see the kids walking (no sidewalks). If he'd slow down some, I wouldn't be bothered, but there are too TOO many behind the wheel who see solid objects as auxiliary brakes.
In the OP's case, taking the lane would have resulted in furious horn-honking... which would be a good thing.
Electric car sales are on fire! :)
