A March 13, 1960, article described the public’s indictment of bus drivers, accusing them of “sometimes deliberately slamming on their brakes to shake up riders” or “refusing to pull up at the curb unless there is a puddle there.” Reported by Gay Talese, who “avoids taking sides in the busman-passenger fracas by traveling to work on the subway,” the piece endeavored to tell the story from the driver’s point of view, a “story of how 10,000 drivers each day battle the world’s worst traffic while being abused by old ladies, shortchanged by schoolboys, cut off by cabs and squeezed by trucks.” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times
