Across the United States, buses are the main sources of public links as well as the private transportation chains. Intercity, cross country, and transit buses often carry commuters as well as other travelers on long and short trips on a daily basis. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has included it in their report that over 850,000 buses are operating in the country. Those vehicles, each year, are involved in more than 5,000 accidents every month. In 2016, the school bus accidents left more than 20,000 injured people. To add to that, over 200 people lost their lives due to those accidents.
