Amazingly, every day, Houston Metro buses are involved in approximately three accidents. In the year 2009, Metro buses were involved in well over 1,000 accidents. Houston Metro buses injured and killed hundreds of passengers, pedestrians, and motorists on the roads. Most of these accidents should never have occurred. Metro’s manner of dealing with these accidents is frightening. They allow their bus driver to investigate their own accidents. This is quite alarming, and is akin to the fox guarding the henhouse.
Bus Accident Violations
The Houston Chronicle reports that Houston Metro Bus drivers were issued an alarming 859 tickets for the past year. Most of the tickets were for speeding, but many were for brake, and equipment failure. Thus, Houston bus driving accidents are statistically inevitable, given the huge number of reckless bus drivers. They are needlessly endangering the pubic when they drive in a negligent and reckless manner. The law requires that they be held accountable when they cause injury and death.
