Mainlanders are so fing stupid. All the driver had to do was stop the bus. Seen this a few times while on the bus, the driver never stops but swerves and I'm the only one stopping the attacker

this went viral almost all over the world. This behavior is actually common in China. It just doesn't usually end up so tragic. Maybe the perpetrator was bent on suicide.

Yeah, seen the pics, thank goodness I didn't view the footage.  What a way to get it.  Did u see the stat?  Something like 58,000 dead in road accidents in 1 year!  wow. but really when you just go and stand around and watch a roadway, well, guess it's not much of a surprise.

It's almost like they want to die...

I remember seeing a video a few years back. Same situation - crazy peasant became enraged when he missed his stop and the 'unreasonable' bus driver wouldn't reverse the bus 1.5 km through heavy traffic to drop him off so he attacked the driver, grabbed the wheel and started yanking on it.

 

I'm not sure the idiots that do that even really know what they're doing when they do it. I think they're just programmed to over-react without thinking further than about 10 seconds from now and the idea that what they're doing could kill themselves and everyone on the bus never enters the mind, the only thing going through the mind is "yeah I'll show you what happens when you don't obey me, shabi".

The woman is to blame, that’s for sure, but I think the driver should have focussed on the bus  more rather than lashing out in vengeance. He should have just taken a few hits and called a passenger for assistance. Shout at her that the bus may crash. I also suspect that the bus must have misaligned wheels, cause letting go of the wheel should not cause the bus to immediately veer to the left when they are on a straight road. The only other reason is that it didn’t veer to the left but he did something suicidal in a moment of anger. In which case they are both to blame. It didn’t mention if the people are in the car are ok, the height of the bridge, or if the currents were strong, how many could swim or were some rescued.

I was out with the daughter yesterday. As the bus we were on was pulling over to our stop I saw 2 women on the pavement, grandma and mom I suspect.

The 2 boys who I assume were under their care were playing on the road. Busses and arctics going around them. We got off the bus and walked past them. Yup, as suspected, the boys were with the women. They were wrestling each other to try pull each others shoes off. One of the women stepped onto the road, picked up one of the shoes, and threw it onto the pavement. The boys chased it.

I felt incredibly sad. Their stupidity overwhelmed me with total sadness.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/15-killed-truck-hits-31-car-lineup-china-0917...

 

An out-of-control truck ploughed into a 31-car lineup in northwest China killing 15 people and injuring 44, authorities in the city of Lanzhou said Sunday.

The accident occurred Saturday night as the driver of the heavy duty articulated truck lost control on a downhill stretch of expressway and collided with cars lining up at a toll booth, Lanzhou's propaganda department said.

Ten of the 44 hurt sustained serious injuries, authorities said.

The big rig driver Li Feng was put under investigation and police watch, according to the official news agency Xinhua.

The semi-trailer was registered to Li's home northeastern Liaoning province, more than 2,000 kilometres from the scene of the accident. It was Li's first time driving the stretch of road, the China Daily said.

State broadcaster CCTV aired video from the scene showing heavy snow and many crippled and twisted vehicles.

Deadly road accidents are common in China, where traffic regulations are often flouted or go unenforced.

Last week a scuffle between a bus driver and a passenger caused a bus to plunge from a bridge into a river in southwest China, killing all 15 people on board.

According to authorities 58,000 people were killed in accidents across the country in 2015 alone.

Violations of traffic laws were blamed for nearly 90 percent of accidents that caused deaths or injuries that year.

an update on the video

 

It seems the lady fighting is a divorced 48 year old lady with a grown son that is in the business of making curtains and drapes for new home buyers when they move in a new place. She had been drinking alcohol late the night before and decided not to drive and take the bus. She missed her stop and decided to be a cantakorous bitch and for 6 more stops harassing the driver.

 

It appears by some that the driver deliberately turned the bus, after some chinese translation and review, I came to a different conclusion.

 

The driver had a schedule and the lady had stepped on his last nerve. What to do? Maybe I can swerve and throw her on the floor of the bus, No. when she gets up, she will bitch even more, OH I got it, there's a camera and killing somebody only costs 50 thousand rmb. I will wreck the bus into a car and the lady on camera will have to pay the damage, fuck it, want be my fault, so swerve the bus a little, dam the lady changed lanes, swerve more, oh no, losing control, in chinese you can hear the driver say shit, shit shit as it flies over, he tried to make a fender bender to blame on the bitch and get her off his back and he and the bitch went to hell together.

The lady in the red car was taken into custody by the police and blamed by journalists with no apology after the video showed it was not her fault at all, the red car lady had 20 years experience driving, also there was a pedestrian near the bus walking when it decided to compete in olympic diving and the pedestrian was 2 meters from being bottom feeder fertilizer for river shrimp.

The first divers reached the bus with lights at 11pm and pulled a short haired lady out first and a 3 year old child. One diver discovered that he had pulled his own father out of the bus. They suspect the force of the water in the front blew out the back windows and the two bodies missing were sitting in the rear of the bus. 78 hours for recovery of the bus and and bodies.

When someone starts to get physicaln and violent with you, it is an invitation. You are invited to a dance, or a game. If you feel your manhood, your face, your dignity or your identity are being challenged, the automatic reaction is to accept the invitation.

But the invitation can be declined. By not reciprocating physical violence, you send a message that it is inappropriate and unwelcome. And that message should be loud and clear, when you are being 'invited' while driving. Onlookers would be motivated to stop the attackers.

Authorities acknowledged that the driver also caused the crash, by returning violence. Onlookers assumed he wanted to win the fight unaided, so stood by while he 'danced', 'played' a game with the challenger.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
