    Why do people let them back out after stopping at the side of the road to pick up passengers?

    Besides blocking the road half the time have you ever been let out of or into a traffic lane by a bus? :x

    Rant over! :lol:

    Where I live now, there are so few busses running that they don't bother me much. However, whenever I see one, I put down my foot to get ahead of it. What with going on country roads with loads of oncoming traffic, I'd just HATE to be stuck behind a bus (I am so often stuck behind one, two or three lorries). By the way, what's worse than getting stuck behind a lorry is getting stuck behind a caravan :roll: Those drivers seem to whistle all the while and take in the scenery, forgetting all about their accelerator, and that it is still there, and that you would need to get your foot down on it... a bit more, please, just so we don't get PARKED on the road? Please!!!! *rant over* ;)

    Yeah, I'm with Corinna - caravans are the scourge of the road. Bus drivers are pretty bad too though!

    i think the highway codes says that buses always have the right of way. that's why you're meant to stop and let them out
