    Interesting about the ART safety article since every time I take the ART 42 or 77, none of the drivers seem to employ the concept of “gradual braking” and I’ve seen people get hurt because they stop so suddenly when pulling up to a stop.

    I like the mobile museum idea. I hope to see it around – I’d definitely stop in.
