Because buses are some of the largest vehicles on our roads in Mississippi, they are capable of causing extensive harm in the event of an accident. On average, it is estimated that there are approximately 60,000 bus-related accidents every year throughout the country. Buses are known as being common carriers on our roads. This means that they are expected to get a passenger from one destination to the next for a small fee. It also means that they are expected to keep passengers safe from harm.
