Tail Swing

One of the hardest things to get people to understand about school busses is the
Tail Swing. The easiest way for me to explain it is to think of a teeter totter.
On a teeter totter, when one side goes up, the other side must go down. Its the
same with Tail Swing on a school bus, when the front end goes left, the back
end must go right. Depending on the type of bus, the Tail Swing can be almost 2 feet.
This is more than enough to hit something, or someone standing on the curb.
