    The bus did not have any kids on it. Was just starting it’s next run after dropping off Spring Ridge Middle School students.

    Seems to me NOT reporting this is as big of a "Richard move" as the bus driver's. Venting on community forums has zero effect on how this bus driver will drive in the future. Reporting the driver might just save someone's life.

    The bus driving around here is pretty scary, what can you expect for part time contracted out drivers though?
    Regardless of employment status, they are all trained and licensed. I think a Richard Cranium driver is a Richard Cranium driver, i.e. that's probably how they drive in a private vehicle.
    Out problem is we expect "professionalism" from certain public sector employees. Personalities don't flip switches, if their a DH , always a DH. If you can get away with a power move,
    You have people who will take advantage. Trust me, they would as soon falsely accuse JQpublic as take illegal short cuts
    Live outside a large city, city cops were know to live in the immediate suburbs. If you did something to piss off that cop, while he was off duty, you could find yourself in city traffic court with all sorts of charges, from parking to some moving violations.
    They just write the ticket, fill in your vehicle information and let the courts work the rest.

    Bus number should be enough. And I second that dashcam suggestion.

    No. Public shaming won't get the driver reprimanded or fired, and in fact accomplishes precisely nothing. You need to report it. Think how bad you'd feel if this crazy driver caused an accident with a bus load of kids and they were hurt of killed, and you didn't report him/her when you saw them engaging in reckless behavior.

    Oh, so just making up for lost time.

    Speed limit on Wildewood Parkway is 30 MPH. WARNING - if you are exiting Wildewood on the Parkway after Evergreen ES drop off you will need to pick up your game or you risk finding a yellow and black vehicle firmly parked in your arse.

    Oh, well. That makes all the difference in the world. I guess a careless school bus driver can't harm anyone if there are no kids present.

    Sounds like this occurred in the Lexington Park area, which according to a recent study, was named the most wonderful place to live on planet Earth
