Driver fatigue is the most common cause of serious bus accidents, along with driver distraction, drivers under the influence, and inadequately trained and inexperienced drivers.
Bus companies often turn a blind eye to the federal regulations, training requirements and maintenance requirements. They deliberately choose profit over public safety.
Buses that are poorly maintained have much greater potential to cause an accident due to a part or system failure. When this happens, the results can be catastrophic or fatal.
Because there is no requirement to install seat belts, riders are at a greater risk of being seriously injured or killed than would be the case if seat restraints were required.
In rare occasions, a bus accident may be caused by inclement weather or poor road conditions. However, drivers should be properly trained to operate the vehicle despite these conditions.
