A friend of mine had a much worse accident where it was clearly the driver's fault (he similarly didn't think the driver would have the audacity to say anything else) and when he called the company for there insurance information, the person who handles claims said "Give me your insurance information". They clearly don't care.

A bus drove recklessly and crashed into the back of my car. It took a half hour for police to come and before I knew it, it was my fault. The driver seemed very experienced with this and together with a cop who didn't even let me finish my story before he went to his car, it was my fault on the police report (with having written things I didn't say).
The bus company just laughed in my face.

Anyone know what to do about it? There were 13/14 year old kids on the bus though not sure if they are eligible witnesses.
Seems like a big problem with many bus drivers driving crazily and at the end of the day being that they do this every other day they know how to get out of it while the victims (like me who's first time it is to have an accident BH) don't even think the bus driver would have the chutzpa to say I drove into him and before we know it, we are at fault.

Is there anyone to complain to that would make the bus company grow up and own up?
I know someone else who had a similar story with the same company.
It's getting out of hand.
What does it say in the report? How did they manage to call getting rear-ended your fault???

I would take this up with the police, contact the police officer who wrote the report and point out that he quoted you on things you didn't say. If he won't correct it file a complaint against him with the police department for making a false report. Not saying you'll get anywhere but neither your insurance nor the bus company will do anything for you as long as the police report says you are at fault. How on earth are they saying you drove into him if he rear ended you?
Thanks. Will try though don't know why the officer would acknowledge that he wrote things I didn't say.

VERY good question! I asked the police officer the same question when I realized the driver was claiming that I drove into him. Especially because I made contact with his wheel and the end of the bus extends way past that and if I drove into him, the front of my car should have gotten hit.
The officer had some type of way it was possible but I did not quite understand. .

Sorry, I wasn't so clear. We were going in opposite directions and as he was passing me he swerved into my lane to avoid a pile of leaves.
In the police report it says that I failed to maintain my lane. Still not sure how only the back of my car got hit

My understanding is, he claims the entire accident happened as you said it did however it was all on HIS side of the yellow lines because you failed to maintain your lane and you were driving on his side of the road.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

That really sucks, but if you send an email with the location and time of the accident to thelakewoodscoop, he'd post your letter requesting any witnesses...

Thanks.
Also wondering if this type of thing happened to anyone else as I'm sure does all the time, is there anything we can do collectively to stop this dangerous driving of buses by people who are all too familiar with how to get out of it?

Every time I got to TD on rt9 and Kennedy the indoor ATM is out of order and the outdoor one screen doesn't work. I realized that all you need to do is press the wheelchair icon on the bottom of the screen (only the bottom of the screen works fully) and it'll let you use the keypad to complete your business.
I'm not who you think I am.

What are the options to get to Manhattan for a 9 am appointment? Driving/public transportation? Shachris?
From Lakewood, of course.
