    As someone who has seen how WDMPS bus drivers force their way into traffic when pulling-onto Grand from Delavan, I’m surprised they are not involved in more accidents. They do not hesitate to use the ‘I’m in a bus – You don’t want to hit me’ approach, including pulling in front of cars when the drivers knows they will have to immediately stop for the railroad tracks South of EP True.
