SEPTA buses & red lights

Jeff Cole was on the scene (in front of the Fox 29 station) and witnessed a bunch of SEPTA buses going through red lights.  This investigation got the attention of SEPTA administrators who issued a notice to all drivers to follow the expected safe driving practices that they are taught. 

Of note – Phlash, Greyhound, and Trolleyworks vehicles were seen blowing through red and yellow lights.
