Wheels on the bus don't go round: 65 percent of Maine school buses fail inspection
from Bangor Daily News
A recent CBS 13 investigation discovered widespread, potentially dangerous problems with the buses Maine children ride back and forth to school. The Portland television station found more than half of the school buses in the state fail to meet basic safety standards, according to Maine State Police reports. Every school day thousands of Maine kids get on school buses. In fact, 80 percent of Maine students take the bus to school, but CBS 13 found about 65 percent of the buses in Maine fail their state inspections. In some school districts, it's even worse.
