Unfortunately, even all these qualifications and skills do not exclude possible accidents involving regular and city buses.
The most common causes of bus accidents are:
  • Fatigue. Many drivers violate hours and miles standards to earn as much as possible, which leads to severe fatigue and decreased attention.
  • Violation of traffic rules. Most often, it is speeding and sloppy lane changes.
  • Distracted driving. Although all passengers know perfectly well that it is forbidden to distract the driver on the road, sometimes they forget about this safety rule. But most often, the drivers distract themselves by phone calls or text messages.
  • Drunk Driver. Unfortunately, despite all the checks, drivers can go on the route being intoxicated.
