Near accident on my route today

I was driving my bus on my route and was going about 45 mph the speed limit is 50 in the area this happened but I was traveling along a busy street here in Tulsa and in the right lane, there was a car about 2-3 car lengths ahead of me and this truck from the left lane cut right in front of me to where I had to hit the brakes. It was a pretty close call too. I've been driving for the city bus system for 8 months now and use to drive school buses before that so I have a lot of experience driving but have never been in an accident knock on wood.

I am glad you could stop in time. What a jerk to cut off a bus!

I know it. Doesn't anyone stop and think that I'm driving a 40 foot bus loaded with passengers? I had about 25 passengers on the bus when this happened.

Quoting Marti123: I am glad you could stop in time. What a jerk to cut off a bus!

This happens to dh every day. I never noticed how crappy 4 wheelers were until I rode with him in the semi. I'm glad you were able to stop in time.

Almost got into an accident three different times yesterday. First time a truck pulled out right in front of me without stopping for the street and then took off when he saw me. Second one I was pulling out of the transfer plaza downtown and as I was turning a car that was about a block away and in the other lane got in the lane behind me and almost hit me as I was turning. Then the third one was a car that ran a red light and I just missed clipping the car but the car got hit by another car and caused an accident.

Some of these people should not be driving.
