Metro bus drivers are the worst- they regularly cut into traffic without signaling and without looking to see if there is oncoming traffic and use the size of their vehicles to try to intimidate their way into traffic.There should be cameras on each of these vehicles to ensure metro drivers follow traffic rules.

10bestfan,
Please re-read the article.

The crash involved a Montgomery County Ride-On bus. . NOT a Metrobus.

Since 1996, Montgomery County Ride-On has allowed a CONVICTED Child Molester to operate buses (Currently in Gaithersburg Depot). This operator was convicted of molesting a co-workers 12 year old daughter, whereas MoCo thought it best to fire the victims daughter instead. A 2x Driver of the month & 1993's Best transit Operator, as recognized by the then MoCo Executive (Neal Potter).
