This ignorant woman thought it was a good idea to tailgate a school bus driving 55MPH on GA400. She was no more than 15 feet from the rear bumper. Had the bus needed to brake she wouldn’t have had time to react. The speed limit is 55 at that point and under GA law a school bus may not exceed 55 MPH while transporting children ever while on a divided highway, 40 MPH on surface streets. The bus was transporting children. Tailgating is a bad idea at any time but putting a bus load of children at greater risk for no reason is just plain stupid.

Good job lady! Well if she DID crash, the children might be spared because her car would have ended up UNDER the bus...
