Because of people like this, hikers (of all skill levels) drawn to a dangerous area by a romanticized story, the bus has been removed to stop people from trying to reach it and needing rescue or recovery.

Actually I think the responsibility falls on the people who left the bus there in the first place, not those who are attracted to it. People won't climb a mountain that's not there. Kids won't play with matches if they can't get their hands on them.

True enough, and probably why the state paid to move it, but it wasn't a problem until the book/movie inspired large numbers to visit.
Edit: That said, people need to take more personal responsibility for their own actions, attractive nuisance or not.
Now that all the kids know the matches are in the dresser drawer, it's time for the parental units to put them away in the locked closet.

Moving this video to BSR's personal queue. It failed to receive enough votes to get sifted up to the front page within 2 days.
