      I saw a supermarket bus head east from Delta, swerve in and out traffic and then turn left into Onemart. The whole nonsense took less than 30 seconds.

    So unessesary. Why are people still tailgating and driving too fast? If the car in front of you stopped and you hit them, you are driving too close . You cannot see what the person in front sees and has to stop. Slow your roll folks.
