    This was probably on the Orange Line. I was riding on an east bound Orange line bus when I saw the car. The front end appeared to be completly torn off. This is not the first accident I’ve seen on the Orange Line as a result of car drivers trying to get past the bus signals, and will not be the last. Too many car drivers are in too mcuh of a hurry to get some where. They need to leave 10 or 15 minutes earlier, and not push their luck trying to avoid the busses.

    I agree that people take busses and trucks for granted. Just remeber that hindsight is twenty-twenty!
