  Jury awards damages from teen driver, school bus she struck

A Massachusetts jury has found a high school student liable for injuries suffered by three friends riding with her when her car struck a school bus head-on. Jurors also found that First Student, owner of the bus, was negligent and shared responsibility for the passengers' serious injuries.


  From Bus & Motorcoach News:

A Massachusetts jury has found a high school student liable for injuries suffered by three friends riding with her when her car struck a school bus head-on. Jurors also found that First Student, owner of the bus, was negligent and shared responsibility for the passengers' serious injuries.

The jurors in Brockton Superior Court on Aug. 28 decided to award the injured passengers more than $30 million, but the family of the car's driver and First Student had reached a confidential settlement while the jury was deliberating damages.

In closing arguments attorneys asked jurors to award more than $60 million.

Monica Knight, then 16, was taking friends for a morning drive before attending high school in Kingston, Mass., in 2012 when her car crossed the center line of a tree-lined, two-lane road and struck the school bus head-on. Her car, and the bus, stopped on the bus's side of the road's center yellow stripes. Her three passengers suffered serious brain injuries.

  Ad campaign uses 30,000 toy cars to get drivers to take the bus

  
  From Metro:

An ad campaign from Swedish public transport company Västtrafik uses toy cars to illustrate the impact of removing 30,000 cars from the road. The toy car installation, which was built to show the insanity of bad traffic - and the impact of people taking the bus instead, coincides with a promotion offering two weeks of free bus transport.

The campaign - featuring what is probably the biggest ever display of toy cars - aims to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions, according to the agency.

Every day, 200,000 commuters in the west of Sweden travel by car. The target for Västtrafik's campaign is 30,000 less cars, decreasing the number of daily car commuters in the region by 15%.


The campaign - featuring what is probably the biggest ever display of toy cars - aims to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions, according to the agency.

If all 30,000 car drivers would instead travel by bus during the two-week trial period, it would erase more than 60 football fields of cars from the region, and save approximately 2,500 tons of CO2............READ MORE >
