Bus stop's the new mobile phone place!

Seem's that bus stops are the legal place to talk! I drive a Bus and I know you all hate them but when I have to pull in for people who cant afford an Alfa or any other car it makes life abit harder, what realy gets my back up is people with 30k plus car's and they dont spend a few more squids on hands free

There are good and bad driver's in all forms of transport, I have done most and I find that Bus's are maybe the most hated but I wish people could have a go in one and see how hard it is to drive a 33 ft bus on 2 mirrors and not upset other road user's, but hay I dont like being stuck behind one either

Re: Bus stop's the new mobile phone place!

Nah, bus drivers don't top my list of most hated drivers. Gotta be Beemers (at least the ones that don't have indicator stalks fitted as the optional extra ) and Mr White Van man, if I had to give out a bronze award it would go to pensioners in rover metro's ( or anything else they upgraded to after their sub-frames collapsed, ie Civics, Daewoo's and the like )

I think bus drivers would get far more respect if, after loading up with a full load of Chav's and other useless scum, they shoved a brick on the throttle and ejected themselves out the cabin, a la james bond style, safely landing ready for their next bus trip of 'social cleansing'

Re: Bus stop's the new mobile phone place!

All I can say is that in my experience in London, the bus drivers there are terrible. Extremely aggressive, driving way too fast and breaking all possible traffic rule.

Surely I hope the majority is not like the ones I've had to drive around with but I've had and have seen others having way too many close calls.

Wait until you take a London Taxi then

I think Vantastic does have a point, all too often people see bus stops as a convenient place to park their cars for a natter...

F*rst Bus bus driver's attitude to cyclists stinks. They literally treat you as if you're in some sort of game. I've even been forced off the road into a hedge by one
