I was on a one lane road in South Chandler, in a No Passing Zone, so I wasn't legally allowed to pass the school bus. When the school bus lights flash, I and about 10 other cars behind me stop. Here is the problem I am having, the school bus at around 7AM in the morning makes stops every 500 feet or so, puts the stop sign out, flash red lights, and then lets kids SLOWLY find their seat on the bus, and then move on to the next group of kids 500 feet away. I called the school district and complained about consolidating the bus stops, because it is RIDICULOUS that the bus had to stop TEN times in ONE BLOCK, STOPPING CARS, and causing cars to BACK UP. One could have easily made this one, or two bus stops MAX. The school district came back to me stating that it was "Health concerns"....So now kids are taught to be lazy to walk to a bus stop? Valley Metro bus stops can be 1/4 mile apart, and light rail stations are every 1 mile....and I can get to those just fine, so don't tell me a healthy High School kid can't walk 1/4th a mile to a school bus stop. Something tells me it is just something to gain more tickets and revenue when people start to get angry and pass the bus illegally. How the hell could something like this get overlooked? Not only is it a waste of gas in the cars behind it, but I am sure it is putting a lot of wear and tear on the school bus itself too. What can really be done about it now? The school district refuses to budge in how they create stops, and I drive down this road quite often at 7AM. So Why not just use another road you ask? The road one mile to the right of this one cuts off mid way, and the road one mile to the left of this one is under construction. They tell me "engineers" place bus stops on the map, but something tells me, it is just placing bus stops where they think its convenient, and then thinking nothing of the traffic build up its causing every morning.
