Description

SEPTA buses drive straight into traffic eastbound on Ridge Ave against the light. There are traffic lights here specifically to meter traffic and allow buses an opportunity to pull onto Ridge yet bus drivers routinely ignore the lights, stopping both lanes of traffic. Traffic heading east will have a green light yet the bus drivers expect cars to yield to buses out of their own sense of self-preservation. This causes backups during rush hour and is even more of a problem when there is snow or ice on the ground and traffic with the right of way cannot stop for the bus running the red light.
