The following report was released by an Israel Police Traffic Enforcement Unit spokesman, stating an alert civilian noticed a bus traveling on Highway 1 and in his opinion, it was leaning to its right, so much so that it posed a danger.

A police vehicle was dispatched, and it did not take long to find the bus in question, near N’vei Ilan. The police car pulled the bus over and within a short time, the officers determined the vehicle, which was full, was not roadworthy, posing a danger to driver and passengers alike.

After the vehicle was stopped at a safe place, the driver and passengers were instructed to get off and they waited for another Superbus to arrive to take them to their destination.

  1. It is very important. The next time that I am about to get on a bus, I must first check to see if the bus looks like it is leaning on a specific side.

  2. The Israeli vehicle inspection standards, ALSO the safe driver standards, are not as stringent as those in the US. Driving like they do in Israel, would earn a license suspension here.

  3. All jokes aside,
    It is a lesson
    ‘See something say something’
    Instead of just looking the other way, if you care to care you may just save a life or a whole busfull of lives

  4. To tie this into the Yeshiva world, what about those buses with a mechitza down the middle? Suppose one gender substantially outweighs the other. Would the bus lean to one side?

  5. The bus was “leaning to its right” and “posed a danger”.

    “the officers determined the vehicle, which was full, was not roadworthy, posing a danger to driver and passengers alike.”

    ” the driver and passengers were instructed to get off and they waited for another Superbus to arrive to take them to their destination.”

    This story is obviously a metaphor.
