Refering to the answer of Mr. Ronald Fisch date Mar 27, 1996, 
since no part of the body of a bus is fixed to act like a pivot, 
even though the front part of a bus is accelerating upward at a rate
greater than g, the back part of the bus still cannot accelerate 
downward at a rate higher than g. The question on why we see the 
passengers float up in air remain unresolved.  Again, is it because
of the spring system?
