“It’ll tip over!”
Most of us who don’t live in England or haven’t visited New York have never ridden on a double-decker bus before. It’s a pretty simple concept, but if you ask us, it looks a lot more dangerous than it actually is. If it makes sharp turns, we’d imagine that the passengers on the top deck would go flying off the side of the bus. No seatbelts, right?
Well, the manufacturer of England’s double-decker buses didn’t think that the bus tipping over was a legitimate problem. To prove his point, he designed a mechanism that tipped the bus about 35 degrees. To everyone’s surprise but his own, he proved that his double-decker bus wasn’t going to fall over.
