Public Transportation Strikes Back!

Here in the U.S. it’s been the people who carry and sort our mail that have been branded as most likely to run amok, the results of which end up badly for all in close proximity. In China, that honor may now go to bus drivers if this video is any indication. If that’s the case, we may need to append the phrase from referencing the mail man and now refer to crazed acts of mayhem as going bus-tal.
In the case of this driver Bus Stop is only metaphorical.

    If any Westerners are asking, yes, this is a daily occurence. Trust me. I'm a Chinese guy.
    Seriously though, what the hell? It's like in Midtown Madness (anybody remember that game?) when you play as the bus and mindlessly plow into a horde of slow-moving Chicago cars, who then pull themselves out of the Jersey barriers and continue along their preprogrammed paths as if nothing happened.
    I hope everybody was ok (esp. that Honda van that flipped over). Though I'm kinda annoyed the bus didn't take out that Lexus RX…just out of principle.

      I've had all three Midtown Madnesses at some point (lent my copy of the original to a cousin, never got it back) – I spent hours cruising the fake streets of Chicago, I even had most of the downloadable cars.

      I just went to Chicago on a recent road trip and recognized much of it from MM.

        Ha, Google translated that to "Get out of my fucking way! If I do not stick to my plan, they would cut me a fucking nuts."

    Truly, it's as your grandmother once said: The guard only needs a second, But get hurt is an influence lifetime.

      Beat me to it, you bastard! The Engrish in that clip is fantastic. Why is the camera chewing on something? What?

      1. Tomsk Avatar

        The side cameras clap of condition. So, so many things they could have meant…

    It did not explode when its speed dropped below 50mph…

    I prefer to think that possibly I just don't understand the Chinese way, and that maybe this is just normal procedure. I have been wrong in the past though.

      That was my thought as well. I mean, there are a lot of folks over there, and this was probably the first bus that had cameras and footages that made it to the intertubes. Statistically, it is odd if this doesn't happen, right?

    Man I love that guy that hit the shoulder and took off! I hope I would have reacted in the same way.

    Man that minivan had some insane brakes, i thought that thing was gonna ricochet like the other black suv.

    Car bowling. Ur doin it right.

    So, the first person I showed this to said, "this isn't real, why would there be three cameras on a Public Transit bus in China."
    Anyone know better? Do they have cameras ready and waiting to record accidents, er, potential accidents?

    Needs more commentary by John Bunnell. "This Chinese bus-driver will continue to give lots of rides to dozens of strangers… IN JAIL."

    1. LTDScott Avatar

      Wow, bravo.

      "This Chinese bus operator continues to give many of riding in a car to many others… JAIL!!"

      1. Deartháir Avatar

        I stand corrected.

    Hmmm…didn't know Killdozer was touring China.

    That guy is living the dream. Pray I never get a bigass bus, metro DC!

      1. CptSevere Avatar

        These days, if you had one of those in Metro DC, you'd be the most popular guy in town.

          I saw that! They got, what, like 3 inches of snow! From the photos, it was almost enough to consider brushing off your car before you head out!
          I keed, I keed. Partly.

          1. CptSevere Avatar

            I hear you. Ask Schmo, in SLC, that amount of snow is pretty much routine.

          2. tenbeers Avatar

            Alright, both of ya, SLC gets it spread out over the entire winter, not all at once. And, joy of joys, it's snowing again!

          3. CptSevere Avatar

            I dunno, I remember four feet of snow on my yard there, awhile ago. Threw the cat off the porch and it disappeared. Jumped back out of the same hole, PISSED. That was the same year the roof collapsed on the old EIMCO warehouse on west Ninth South where I worked. I was part of the cleanup crew. Should have seen the '83 Eldo my bosses had stored there that got crushed into a three foot tall lozenge. Tragic.

          4. tenbeers Avatar

            Ouch. On Sunday the roof collapsed at the garage where my neighbor stores his Lancia Montecarlo and his inlaws Audi rally car, both missed getting squished by mere inches, they really lucked out. Well, as far as one who just had their roof cave in can "luck out", that is.
            Another 10" + 50mph winds inbound. Good times.

            Powder day at Alta.

            To hell with snow, that contraption is built for clearing the streets of lobbyists.

            Zombies, lobbyists, same damn thing.

        Holy CRAP!!!

  12. joshuman Avatar

    But what is the sound of one camera clapping of condition?

  13. Age_of_Aerostar Avatar

    I think that the footage was sped up by the Chinese government prior to "release" of this video.
    Really, the bus is traveling at about 10 mph, but that's just what happens to Chinese cars at that speed.

    If this bus driver had lived in the U.S., he could've exorcised his frustrations by sending his wife Alice to the moon.

    Chinese way to check if there was any improvement on NHTSA ratings.

    The guy in the black car that went on the shoulder should get the hoon of the year award.

  17. Maymar Avatar

    That'd never happen in Toronto unless Tim Hortons makes their drive-throughs big enough for a bus.

  18. Dogsbody Avatar

    hmm… maybe the bus is a Toyota experiencing 'unintended acceleration'?
