Cyclist Clashes With Bus And Driver: YOU Decide!
Did a Philadelphia bus driver give a cyclist who blocked the bus enough room as he passed him? You can now be the judge, sort of. SEPTA (the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) has now released a 30 minute video, including several minutes of the bus driver’s route beforehand, the moments when the bus passed the cyclist and about 20 minutes of the man standing in the way of the bus on Locust Street. As a personal protest, the cyclist preventing the bus from moving. As Philadelphia has become more "bicycle friendly," these types of problems are becoming more frequent.
