Every year, thousands are injured or killed in bus accidents. It is mostly due to the negligence of the driver or the faulty mechanics of the vehicle. In one year there were 1700 accidents involving only New York City school buses which resulted in over 900 injuries. Multiply that by the number of regular commuter buses, and you have a significant number of injuries caused by the transporting of people in these large vehicles.
