yeah just look at what happens to an RV when it crashes ... abnyone who drives I95 or I75 from or to south florida usually sees at least one smashed to bits..

i still rememebr seeing that video of a dfigure 8 school bus race where a little blue bird shortie must have rolled over 4 times and didnt crush...

then again the new school busses arent build as solid as the old ones.. esp the IC stuff.. look at the pics of the couple recent IC bus rollovers.. lots of smashed roofs...

Yeah that figure 8 racing is bus abuse, plain and simple. Let's start a society for the prevention of cruelty to buses. SPCB.

A decade or so ago our local sheriff was involved in one of those school bus figure 8 races. He somehow fell out of the bus while driving it and was run over and killed.
These races aren't good for anyone!

This is why i chose the skoolie route: because the safety of my family is more important than granite countertops while i drive.

Sobering. Mercifully quick for the car's driver, but rough on the passenger and the bus driver. I would be distraught, too.
