Warning: taking a jeep may be dangerous to your health. Take the train instead.

Reckless drivers of public transportation should equipt their vehicles with safety equipment, if only to warn the passengers that it is going to be a roller coaster ride.  My head, arms, shoulders, back, and thighs have bruises from trying not to fall out of the jeep.  The only time we (the passengers) felt safe was when the jeep was stopped to pick up passengers.

It’s bad enough that the driver weaves in and out of traffic like his pants are on fire, when he stops to pick up passengers or let passengers down he seems to stand on the breaks!

Maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad if I was in jeans.  ‘Cause then there would be some friction on the seat.  Sadly, I was coming home from school so I was wearing slacks, and I was slipping and sliding back and forth on the seat.  I found myself wishing, not for a seatbelt, but rather for one of those off-road safety harnesses.  You know the type.  The one that straps you into your seat and keeps you in place no matter what.

The driver was young … possibly in his early 20s and his friends were in the front seat with him.  Maybe he was showing off to his friends.  I don’t know.  But you can be sure if someone actually got hurt because of his shenanigans, he will suddenly plead innocent and say he didn’t know he was going so fast.  Huh!  A likely story!
