Apparently some streets in Santa Barbara are a hazard to tour coaches. This bus is completely stuck and has to wait for a tow.

...unlike a certain percentage of RV owners who park (or used to park) on our city streets, the tour buses are not filled with drug-addicted loud-mouth losers who dump their pee-pee/poo-poo/doo-doo, needles, and filth day and night. Granted, not all of these RV peeps is as bad as described, but that's why the city came down on them. There is an old saying: "It only takes one rotten apple to ensure that the rest of the apples become eventually become rotten and unpalletable."

Well, well, well. The city has aggressively targeted RV's on the theory that city streets are too small for them and that they constitute a hazard to pedestrians and other vehicles due to size. Yet the city has excluded these tour behemoths from the same laws. All the animals are equal but some are more equal.

I'm a bus driver, it's the drivers fault he or she could of raised the rear end a few inches with the flip of a switch. Maybe the visitors center could give bus drivers a map of SB with a list of what to look out for wile driving around our beutful city.

does this wording imply that the intersections need to be enlarged to accomodate tour buses? How about, instead: "tour buses too big for some streets?"

I love collecting "firsts." Thank you, BODYBOARDER. "theirs" used in place of "there's" is a great one.

The first row of rear drive tires is hovering above the drainage culvert, so theirs no way for it to spin unless he has a rear differential, which may not help

Some people just seem to be inobservant and lack basic physical intuition. It's *obvious* that it is the rear of the bus, which is touching the ground, and not the rear wheels which are in a depression , that is bearing the weight of the bus.

The rear bumper is hitting road and pushing the drive tires above the road surfus so the bus can't get any traction. These buses are equipped with a device that lifts the bus a few inches to prevent this from happening looks like the driver forgot to use it.
