New information has surfaced regarding a possible flaw on SEPTA buses that increases the risk of a fatal accident for pedestrians.

Questions have now be raised if the oversized mirrors are to blame for the surge of fatal pedestrian accidents in our region. For the full story, follow this link: INVESTIGATION: LEFT-SIDE MIRRORS A DEADLY FLAW ON SEPTA BUSES?
