I can only name about 2 Nascar drivers and their sponsors, and I cant name any players on any other sports teams. But I do try and follow my University of Toledo Rockets - football games, which I will be tailgating at regularly with the bus.

It's all about the 3 B's - Bus, Babes, and Beer

My wife says I have a one track mind. I don't think about sports, just buses.

I got in a bus accident last sunday. In very heavy traffic in Downtown Detroit during the annual electronic music festival. I was changing lanes and did not see the car in my blind spot (i no longer have the bus driver mirror sticking out from the hood...i think that mirror would have prevented the accident)

At approximately 3 mph our vehicles made contact. It made a really loud CRUNCH! Then the four letter words started, not from me, but from the other motorist. The passenger side of his car was pretty shmanked up, but the door still opened! I coulnd't find a visible scratch on my bus.

anyhow....

I don't know if he was drinking, or if he had a warrant for his arrest or whatever, but he did NOT want to make a police report, he just wanted to leave.

I felt pretty bad, but i was glad nobody was hurt.

Haha, I'm close enough to Detroit to figure he probably had a warrant out for his arrest. Glad your rig wasn't hurt!!

If it was on the drivers side good thing he didn't make it to your gas tank.

Bus accident

I am glad to hear that thier where no repercussions on your end regarding the accident . That would never have happened to me. With my luck it would have been the local police Chief in his personal car and I would have gone to jail . Smile and heave a big sigh of relief and possibly think of placing a spot mirror or two on your on your Bus.

My bet is he had no driver's license and/or insurance.

it was on the drivers side...but my fuel tank is on the passenger side....not to mention the cage around the fuel tank is made from 2 inch square tubing. Besides...it's just diesel fuel, not much chance of fire or explosion.
