Washington is home to many colleges and universities, most of which have to figure out a way to transport large groups of students at times. The best way to transport groups of people is often via bus. This type of transport is also more economical than cars because buses can transport more individuals at once. There are dangers to taking a bus, however. A bus usually does not have the same safety features as a car, such as an airbag or a seat belt for every occupant. These differences can make bus accidents even more dangerous for both passengers and others on the road.
