This blog has written extensively about reckless bus drivers in the Houston area who have put their passengers' safety at risk by driving recklessly. Details are still sketchy, but an accident that happened earlier today involving a Houston Metro bus may not be the driver's fault.
It's important to obey all traffic signals, because they are in place for everyone's safety. Carelessly disregarding them can put the driver's life at risk, along with any passengers and other drivers on the road. Any car accident caused by violating any traffic laws can leave a driver liable for any injuries to anyone else.
