Dooring a bus & blaming the bus driver

A parked driver in Seattle opens her door into the path of a moving bus with predictable results. Just like everybody else, she’s a better than average driver who would never cause a traffic accident, so naturally she blamed the bus driver for taking out her car door.

Apparently, she was sure it was the bus driver’s fault – not hers – so she insisted that the Police respond to the accident.

Velo Bus Driver tells us this “it’s not my fault” reaction is common.
