What's troubling is this:
It looked as though he went out of his lane, and into the oncoming lane (there was no oncoming traffic) to plow it down.
Perhaps that was the problem? I personally really don't see why they should have asked him to resign.

Aren't there laws about placing objects in the street which obstruct traffic?

If the guy was in his personal vehicle, I'd have an issue with him losing his job or being pressured out of it if that is what happened, however, I would not have a problem with him being ticketed for this. While I believe hsgbdmama is correct about obstructing traffic, the driver's behavior is still wrong. Set aside that he is responsible for the safety of the passengers on the bus and that the bus most likely belongs to a private company or tax payers in some form, there could have been a kid standing behind it, building it or someone could have maliciously built a concrete core in frosty. It was stupid and reckless and if I were his supervisor, I'd have fired him for it and he should be thankful if that was all that would have happened to him. Maybe it isn't the best analogy but it reminds me of the Jetblue moron.
Another example of the government run amok. Let's make a law, that will solve it all.
The bus driver may have saved someones life.
Placing stuff in the road is a dangerous practice.
But it was still fun watching this.
The guys who put the snowman in the lane of traffic?
Who turned him in? Some liberal, some agenda driven lib.
What’s troubling is that the rest of us discussed this a week ago.
What did the daddy tomato say to the son tomato when he was lagging behind ?
Grand Theft Auto!!!
You’re absolutely right. The kids who put it there should be in front of a judge right about now.
Isn’t “Insane Bus Driver” an alternative rock group?
They were a one-hit-wonder band.
The only song that ever got air time was “I Wanna Die Peacefully In My Sleep Like My Grandaddy Did. [Not Screaming In Terror Like His Passengers]”.
Ah...the 80s alternate rock scene.
Really. No sympathetic characters here, but it doesn’t look bad enough for the driver to lose his job.
My guess is there is some damage to the bus. I can’t imagine hitting something that heavy and not doing something.
Still, a job is precious these days, and a severe but lesser punishment may have been better.
