- Reckless driving: It is hard to understand why some bus drivers engage in speeding, careless driving and other reckless behaviors, yet it happens with alarming frequency.
- Intoxicated driving: Most intoxicated driving cases involve alcohol, but drivers also drive impaired on prescription or other drugs, endangering everyone on the road.
