Bus Drivers!!

Well what a day this has been

Nearly got run off the road by a **** bus driver on the way home today, was about 1/2- 3/4 way up the side of him and he just pulled into my lane without even looking, pushed me to the medium strip didnt scuff the rims thankfully.. blasted him, he still didnt stop, got up next to him and he just gave me a blank look, so rang up adelaide metro and made a complaint against him hehe.. damn bus drivers all are shite, dont deserve a pay rise, thats the 2nd time i have nearly been hit by them, once they didnt stop for me at a ped crossing either :(

just had to let that out not a happy chappy today.. i hate bus drivers and IMO they dont deserve a pay rise if they cant even follow the road rules

*grumbles*

that happened to us the other day (i mum and dad's car) we slammed on the brakes so he didnt hit us, then once in the lane he was all over the road, then he precieded to cut off 3 more cars and swerve at the last second down an off ramp, all this on a tour bus, we got the company's name and rang them with the bus's no. plate.

Re: Bus Drivers!!

As long as a bus is bigger and heavier than my car they'll have my respect if you know what I mean!

Re: Bus Drivers!!

Yeah, the worst thing they did in SA was make the compulsory Give Ways on the busses, as opposed to the courtesy things. They just have no regard for anything like that. Even being on a bus, some of them cant drive for crap, everytime i get off one of those really old Volvo busses with the red vinyl seats, i feel like breaking stuff. haha
