A Government ban and confiscation of deadly "Assault" buses!!
LA GRANDE, Oregon – A tour bus careened through a guardrail along an icy Oregon highway and 100 feet down a steep embankment Sunday, killing nine people and injuring more than 20 others, authorities said. The charter bus carrying about 40 people lost control around 10:30 a.m. on snow- and ice-covered lanes of Interstate 84 in a rural area of eastern Oregon, according to the Oregon State Police. The bus crashed near the start of a 7-mile section of road that winds down a hill.
The Carrollton, Kentucky bus collision was one of the deadliest bus disasters in United States history. About 11:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday May 14, 1988, Larry Mahoney, a drunk driver in a pickup truck traveling in the wrong direction on an interstate highway in a rural, unincorporated area of Carroll County, Kentucky collided head-on with a gasoline-powered former school bus which was in use as a church bus. The initial crash was exacerbated when the gasoline from the ruptured fuel tank of the bus ignited immediately after impact, which also blocked the front loading door. Difficulties encountered by the victims attempting to evacuate the crowded bus quickly in the smoke and darkness through the only other designated exit, the rear emergency door, resulted in the death of 27 people and injured 34 of 67 passengers.
The World Wide Tours bus crash took place on March 12, 2011, resulting in the deaths of fifteen people. The crash took place before dawn at about 5:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the New England Thruway segment of Interstate 95 at the border between The Bronx and Westchester County, New York. The bus was returning to Chinatown, New York City from Mohegan Sun casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. The bus swerved and collided with a metal sign pole, which ripped through the bus and tore off most of its roof. Thirteen passengers were killed outright, two died at hospitals and the remaining 17 people on board, including the driver, were injured.
(Australian example of how deadly these "Assault" buses can be) The Grafton bus crash killed 21 people and injured 22 on the Pacific Highway on the North Coast of New South Wales near Grafton. At some time between 3:50 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. on Friday, 20 October 1989 a southbound semi-trailer truck carrying a load of tinned fruit juice veered onto the wrong side of the road and collided with a passenger bus travelling the other way. The bus was carrying forty-five passengers. The impact of the semi-trailer truck resulted in a penetration of the side of the bus, both spilling passengers onto the road as well as causing trauma for passengers within the bus interior. At the time, this crash was the worst in Australian road transport history in terms of number of deaths. The driver of the truck, who was among the dead, was found to have a high concentration of ephedrine in his blood, a stimulant similar in effect to the amphetamines. The concentration found was 80 times in excess of the normal therapeutic level, even for chronic users. It was subsequently found that the truck driver used ephedrine to stay awake and alert, a then common usage by long distance drivers.
In response to these outrageous tragedies should the Government ban and confiscate these deadly "Assault" buses????
After all the freedom to ride or to own a bus is not a Constitutionally guaranteed right and they seem to cause so much useless carnage and senseless death.
Demand a plan!! Before we have another Le Grande or Carrollton!!
