Community grapples with grief after deadly bus accident

Community grapples with grief after deadly bus accident.

By Paulette Motzko:

If this guy crashed two school buses, why is he still working as a bus driver? For the love of God, we wonder why there’s so many tragedies and fatalities in the world . It seems that nobody’s accountable for anything  they do. 

If I was one of the parents in the community I would be outraged and I would want to see that that guy is fired and be monetarily compensated for their stupidity and letting the guy continue to be a bus driver.

– After all if you jeopardize the safety of people you shouldn’t be driving! Once should have been enough for this company. Perfect driving record is what the bus driver should have, and nothing short of that.

The sweet, innocent children shouldn’t have died because of somebody else’s negligence.  

The bus company should take accountability for this atrocity  and take proactive action and apologise to all the parents as well.

(No amount of money will never bring their children, back but with a class action suit from all the parents, it will set a precedent. 

The best company obviously needs to raise their standards of the kind of people they hire to sit behind that wheel.

I’m not a lawyer but let’s just say I had a hell of a time with my ex-husband, who didn’t pay me alimony or two and a half years even though I was married 15 years!

Do seat belts make school buses safer?

Do seat belts make school buses safer?

I say absolutely they do!

I know I never get in the car without putting a seatbelt on because it’s not so much for the driver is it’s all the people who are on the road with you. Here in Las Vegas Nevada there’s such a high incidence of people on drugs Kama addicted to things like alcohol and other substances, that they very rarely watch the road. You’re lucky if they can drive and not be under the influence of something seriously. I’ve been to Dina Titus the head of Transportation in this town and she didn’t seem to care about anything. She didn’t seem to care that I had Paratransit for over 20 years and Southern California and here I was turned down saying wasn’t disabled enough either. But back to the point, I think absolutely everybody should be equipped with seat belts. I’m not a parent but if I were, I would want to ensure the safety of my child.

What is your opinion on this?
