Brazilian bus driver training

In Cariacica, Brazil, part of the bus driver training is to have the drivers ride on a stationary bike while a bus zooms by them at top speed, to give them a sense of how cyclists feel.

It seems like with each pass the bus got closer.

That's looks really scary!

Great idea! Every bus driver should have that kind of training every spring.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

As a Dutchman and (therefore) regular cyclist, I have to say, the bus drivers over here are OK. Coach drivers don't drive dangerously all that often, but tend to part in cycle lanes. White van men and (especially) truckers, not so much - they're all dangerous morons.
