21. Atlanta School Bus

Bigger picture

This is a crazy scene... The place is just south of the small high-rise area which constitutes Atlanta's downtown. And in this modern high-tech area is this old-fashioned school bus which looks like a 1950s model. Well, I'm probably misjudging the age of the school bus, because school buses in the US generally look like this. One has to hope it is just the exterior design that is frozen, and that the kids do travel in buses that are of current standards, not the least when it comes to safety. Then again, when you see one of these buses coming to an almost complete stop when crossing a railway you wonder. Is the spring system in the buses really that bad?
