This bus is running a red-light while taking a left turn on to Georgia Avenue from Wayne Ave. A dozen pedestrians had to put on the brakes for this bus. The photo is blurry for the same reasons this is dangerous - it was dusk and the bus was travelling fast.
How did I get this shot? I always have my camera ready at this intersection. Something risky almost always happens when I go through here. A friend of mine was struck and disabled here. Even with new pedestrian infrastructure in place, this intersection is one of the riskiest in the area. Busses - and drivers who pull stunts like this - are a major contributing factor.
