We've Got More Junk in Our Collective Trunk
According to the Federal Transportation Administration we need bigger seats on buses because we've got too much junk in our trunks. We've gotten so much fatter that the FTA is recommending that seats be designed to accommodate an average passenger weight 175 pounds versus the previous 150 pounds. I guess the good news is that bigger seats on buses will mean fewer seats on buses, forcing more people to stand (and thus burn more calories). God knows we can use it.
