even thought I have a green, I make sure all the traffic comes to a stop or slowing down before I proceed.  If I see some morons decided to blow through the red, I will blast my horn until they stop.  Some sadly don't and gave me a middle finger salute.

I'm very liberal with my horn use 👍

Yeah that temporary setup on the north service road at Kennedy is really sketchy, I've been onboard for a few near misses there.

In the end as long as the operator is cleared of fault...who cares, I’ve been in so many cases where after I’ve had a solid green someone runs a light and they barely miss me, unfortunately it will never change.

Excellent.  Same here.  And not only that, if I need to use the horn, and I see an Uber or Lyft decal on the vehicle I need to honk at, the horn button stays down.  It stays down for a looooooooooong time.

Ouch.  That sucks.  I hope the post-accident process went alright.

It went okay but it's not something I want to do again.

7944 and 8608 were involved in accident on Highway 27 with a SUV. I didn't see any major damage to 8608, however I only saw the back of 7944, so I am not sure about that one.

So this happened to 3400 at Finch and Warden this morning... So easy to point out with the old driver's window...

These new LFS HEV's aren't having the best of luck. Quite a few of them smashed up in what seems mostly bus-on-bus collisions.

That's true. And it doesn't help that they started entering service in a very snowy & slippery January & February.
