You are driving on the freeway. You are in the car alone. You are speeding a little going 5 over the speed limit. You see a school bus coming up on your left. It BLOWS by you. It is full of kids. The bus has to be going 15 over the speed limit.

What do you do?

 Ponder over how there are never cops around when a bus is speeding on the freeway.  Other than that, nothing.  It's not like the bus is swerving, it's just speeding.  Cause and effect will get em...I just focus forward.

Are there children in the bus? Am I in an area I am familiar with our "out of town?"

Yep. It is full of children. It's an area you drive all the time.

I would call the police and report it.

It probably should be reported, to the bus company if not the police.

I would note what direction the bus is going and try to get its tag number or the school its from. And as soon as possible pull over and call the police or at least report it to school transportation department.   

Ihave actually had this happen in our neighborhood where the speed limit is 25 mph,and I was at stop sign(luckily)and a school bus went tearing down the cross street in front of me doing at 40 plus!  And there were kids on the bus!

When I called the transportation department of our schools here in Springfield the guy who answered was like trying to brush me off,so I ask to speak to his superior,then he finally took me seriously.  I had to go down and file a complaint noting the time and where I seen the driver ect.   Hopefully it did some good.  I never heard anything else from them.

I do nothing.

It's highly unlikely that I'd only be doing 5 over the speed limit on the highway. haha

guess I would just be wondering where the cops are when you need them.
