Bus Accident Causes
Bus accidents happen for a number of different reasons. Some accidents happen simply because buses can be so difficult to maneuver. Inexperienced or poorly trained drivers are a major factor in many bus accidents as well. Poor road conditions, overloading and the absence of safety equipment on a bus can also be causes.
Despite regulations requiring routine bus maintenance, mechanical issues continue to be a major problem and an underlying cause in many accidents. The main reason for this is that bus companies can save money by cutting corners and deferring maintenance for as long as possible.
