How Not To Drive

This is a tour bus he had been changing lanes abruptly, finally caught up with him.

Slow down and enjoy your drive!

At first I thought they were just trying to get past the debris and look for a safe place to stop. What a shame any help they could have provided would have been better than just driving away.

It's a shame there had to be a fatality. It was so easy to prevent. Just slow down. I guess no one could be bothered, and stop.

I had a wild bus ride ONCE!! I will never ride another commercial bus again and that is a good reminder. What is a guy like that thinking?? Poor people riding with a jerk like that!

I don't think that was a roadworthy vehicle for even a sane person to drive.

The other sad thing is if he had simply been in the #1 (fast lane) where he belonged, he wouldn't have been any further behind, and the tragedy would have never happened.

Driving or traveling in Asian countries can be a whole new experience and can be an eye opener. Makes some of the stuff you see here in the states pretty tame.

Absolutely. There is a whole new meaning to involvement and mindset. I recall one business trip to Taiwan where a body was lying alongside the road just outside Taipei, waiting to be claimed by a relative according to our driver - it was still there hours later when we returned from the job site. Oh, and Mideast countries such as Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Saudi Arabia -- phew. All make our US drivers look as though they are sane. Then if you feel the need - watch a few of the thousands of dash cam crash videos from Russia on You Tube and you will quickly decide that most drivers in the US are really decent in comparison - not that I condone many of the dumb actions I see.
