But soon someone will get hurt

When are you people gonna quit driving like idiots? When are you gonna quit running reds on buses? Quit tailgating? Quit passing us from three cars back when our yellows are on?? Hmmm? You do know its the law to STOP 30 feet from either the front or rear of a School bus when the reds are on?? Pull your heads out of your butts! One day your gonna hit one of our kids! I can't wait for new legislation to pass that throws some of you in jail for these things and see you pay a hefty fine..
