What causes bus accidents in Philadelphia?
Although there are a variety of factors that can lead to bus accidents,
there are a number of common causes that are the result of
negligence on behalf of the driver or the bus company. Dangerous collisions can occur because a bus driver may be inexperienced,
under the influence of alcohol, distracted, or simply tired. This can
lead to a deadly mistake when he or she is driving innocent passengers.
The bus itself may be improperly maintained and therefore suffer mechanical
failure while in transit. The bus company may not perform thorough background
checks on its employees and therefore hire a driver with a poor driving
record or even a criminal record.
