SEPTA buses, trolleys, and other transportation vehicles provide rides to commuters and visitors on a daily basis. Unfortunately, with this constant presence on the road, SEPTA drivers may engage in accidents with other drivers, which could lead to accidents with serious implications for many including various injuries as well as potential fatalities. Skilled bus drivers may find it challenging to maneuver a large vehicle like a bus among smaller vehicles while other bus drivers may fail to use caution when operating one.
