    This happens so many times. I can’t count the times I have seen this,Someone running along side the bus banging on the side. The Driver doesn’t know you’re there….You aren’t watching for potholes that will trip you or the mirror sticking off the side of the parked car that will knock you off your feet.There will be another Bus soon….It’s not worth it.
