Busses are nothing. How about the State Trucks doing 35 mph that will not pull over to let you by even with 15 cars following them.

Throw some more money at the problem, maybe that will cure it.

So "drivers" adjust your morning routine and leave a little earlier.

Knickman, good points, except for the fact that the ones causing the problems don't care anyway. Being called to the office, letters sent home, parent/teacher conference, topped by a 3 day suspension - USED TO BE considered serious -- now it's more like mediocre, oh wow slap my wrist and F*** Y** jerk. They don't care

This article is timely but one thing has been left out. There are always a certain number of students and it seems like it usually the same ones who are never out there for the bus. Sometimes a driver will let you pass and other times they won't. Bus drivers should be required to report students who are persistantly not ready for the bus to the transportation supervisor who would in turn advise the administration. Attempts to correct this problem could begin with the student being called into the principals office, followed by letters to the parents, followed by parents called in for a conference. I am willing to believe a parent would not be too happy about having to take work time off , and his child would get read the riot act. As a last resort, a 3 day suspension. Other motorists on the highway must be to work on time. They should not have to add an excessive amount of their own time for the commute because students take their sweet time getting to the bus.
