    I think any bus driver would see the truck & back up to avoid contact but apparently whatever control the bus is not programmed for defensive driving.

    And there you have it, not the computer controlled bus at fault, maybe they could add a feature such as a HORN with a sensor that would go off when things get to tight,cause we all know some body is never going to back into a drive or ally to make a drop

    What a bunch of crap. Blame the human because the computer did what it was told. Because nobody will admit they didn't program it right.
