Another tour incident
By Christina Bush


July 14, 2011

We have enough tour vehicles on the road during the tour season, it seems to me that the popular land and sea tour bus/boat is a bit much considering drivers have proved difficulty seeing around their own vehicle. I have personally witnessed this specific tour bus/boat make mulitple close calls with parked cars and pedestrians in cross walks.
I have decided to post this letter because of a recent incident where a bus/boat bumped or cliped a child riding a bike causing minor injury.

This aggravates me because the driver nor the business was sited for this. I hold my breath everytime I am near these vehicles in motion.

My question is, why wasn't he/she (driver/business) sited?
