Washington (CNN) - You have to brace yourself watching them. One video shot from the dashboard of a bus shows a pedestrian being hit full-force and dropping. Another video shows a woman crossing in front of a bus and nearly getting plowed over.
Others show buses running red lights, turning into oncoming traffic and hitting cars. In each case, the bus is driven by an accredited, trained city bus driver in the nation's capital.
The newly released videos show events that occurred last August and September. They include dozens of collisions, 134 near-collisions and a number of traffic violations.
