Millions of Canadians take various forms of public transportation on a daily basis. It is a basic necessity, and operated by highly trained and qualified drivers. However, whether it’s the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), WheelTrans, Go Transit or any other operating public transportation system, they are not immune to accidents.
There are various circumstances under which a public transportation accident can occur, from inclement weather, reckless driving (by both bus drivers and other drivers on the roads), hitting a bump in the road, amongst many others. Public transit driver error or negligence can lead to struck pedestrians, cyclists, passengers and other motor vehicles, resulting in substantial injury. Due to the enormity of difficulty involved in the maneuvering of such machinery as buses and street cars, the impact can be particularly devastating.
