Vietnamese police bus driver

Normally, people in the States have respect for authority and listen to them for the most part. But apparently in Asia, that is optional.

When Vietnamese traffic lieutenant Nguyen Manh Phan attempted to pull over a bus driver heading the wrong way down the street, the driver decided to flee instead of pulling over.

So what’s a foot officer left to do? Well, he jumped onto the front of the bus, of course. The officer positioned himself and held on for dear life as the driver continued on his route. The bus eventually pulled over, but not before the incident was caught on tape. Check out the video for yourself.

Superbus Gullwing doors

We all know metro buses to be fairly dull and boring, but a group of student engineers from Holland figured that this isn't how buses have to be. From there, the SuperBus concept was born. Although the SuperBus does not follow a set route, you can send it a text message with your location, and it’ll come pick you up. The bus runs on electricity, features 16 gullwing doors, and is set to run about 155 miles before charging is needed.

So what do you do when it snows in the Netherlands? Whip the SuperBus out and conduct more testing! Check the video out after the jump.

Lisbon Bus With GPS

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: GPS, Transportation

Lisbon GPSClever Spain has installed GPS navigation systems in buses that go from the airport to the Lisbon’s center. One is placed in the front and one is in the middle of the vehicle. Partially designed for the driver, riders can see a list of stops on the way there. We guess the only problem is that the signal can be lost in case of a narrow street or going through a tunnel. We hope other cities adopt this idea for travelers who are navigationally challenged.
