    I was road raged by a bus driver. I wouldn't slow down and let him merge in front of me in a construction zone so he tried to cut me off. I responded by drive up on the median and getting in front of him :rofl: He lost his mind, whipped open his side window at 100mph and starting yelling at me then slammed the window shut :lol: It was somewhat my fault he got enraged but only because I wasn't letting him merge (I had the right of way).

    I know there are a lot of idiot drivers... and passengers for that matter... out there that make it tough to drive bus but I hate how a lot of bus and taxi drivers think they own the road.

    I usually yield to buses when I can but if I'm along side of them when they decide it's time to change lanes I typically wont budge. From what I can tell they aren't big fans of that. :lol:

    I take the bus every day. When I drive...I make sure I stay the fuck out of the way of buses....don't need to get run down.

    Yeah, my car will never win a fight against a bus, so i don't fight them, letting go is way easier.

    Ontario has a law that you have to yield to buses. :grumble:

    Why? So he can gather up a bunch of people just making up or embelishing stories to make sound good? All for the goal of making someone else look bad? He's a tool.

    can count on probably 2 hands how many times i've taken metro transit. But everyone i work with takes it and not one day goes by where I hear someone complaining about how someone puked on the bus and they had to sit or stand near it holding their breath the whole trip :puke3:

    I take it twice a day. Only had two weird folks so far.

    One guy had a bajillion piercings and was vigorously air drumming and singing loud enough for most of the bus to hear. FREAK

    other guy had a starin problem. he'd open his eyes as wide as possible nad focus for 5-10 seconds. i looked up and saw him staring at me, fuck was it creepy.

    My car got into it with an Arcadian Lines bus on the corner of Spring Garden and South Park a couple summers ago. The bus won round one, but my insurance company dominated in round two. :happysad:
