Joe Gilbert is switching gears.
Gilbert, who has been a school bus contractor for more than 40 years, said that safety is his primary focus most of the time.
Later this month, Gilbert is going to drive one of his school buses as part of the first ever Cecil County Fair School Bus Demolition Derby.
Safety is taking a back seat for that one night.
"For the first time, I can crash one. I can be wild, crazy, and reckless," said Gilbert. He was invited to be part of this event.
