70x's safer than a car. Not worried about what little integrity we may remove during a build making it now dangerous.

I noticed in an otherwise completely nonpartisan topic the author couldn't resist getting in a political dig.

Generally I recommend ignoring advice from someone who can't help resist throwing political digs into nonpolitical topics but I think we all agree that yellow is the best color for a school bus and that it's too bad we can't keep them yellow.

I've been considering high-vis fluorescent green which should be equally noticeable especially with the size of vehicle. Of course then the risk is people thinking you're a highway department truck but at least they'll see you!

I actually don't like school bus yellow.

I much prefer Conversion Blue.

I told Hillary that we should go with a color other than white for this new bus. And of course she wants another tiffany blue color.

I've updated her that "any color that would be appropriate for a baby's room is off the table"

Hey Josh,

Why are you opposed to White? I am inclined to paint mine white. Is there a downside that I am overlooking? Or simply personal preference?

I just want a bit more color, no technical reason. Also if send like IH White is the tend now and I have to stay a few steps ahead of the crowd you know.
