    Shit, that's kind of scary, but admittingly, it's a bit amusing at the same time.

    Ok, it's pretty funny hehe

    It's a bit more fun to watch on a laptop, where you can turn the whole thing according to how the bus rolls on its side.

    Taken from the article from the link above:

    Also, the kids only bump into one another on impact.
    Oh ok, no biggie!

    I still can't believe there aren't seat belts on schoolbusses
    I’m not crazy, I just need to get off this island. The doctors don’t believe I invented the chocolate éclair. But I did. I’m going to burn them all and drink soup from their skulls! Happy soup! Untie me and I’ll kill you last!

    This still amazes me to this day...the driver has one and has to wear it, but none of the kids do.

    Seems silly to stick your kid on the bus when you could drive them in a safer vehicle.

    Well, the thing is... buses are "safer" than cars... because they have the mass factor... if a bus gets into an accident with even a SUV, no problem... the people in the bus won't really get thrown through the windshield like they would in a car if they weren't a seatbelt... because the SUV would go flying, but the bus will just get a slight jolt and continue plowing along until it gradually comes to a stop.

    This doesn't help if the bus tips over, no... or if it happens to hit a semi-trailer... but... in most accidents, buses are safe without seat belts... but I do wonder why it's universal that school buses don't use seat belts...

    Correct, they are generally safer. But you would think with all the other safety crap we have to deal with on the road, this would have been done already.
