    Not you driving I hope

    Drivers and low sun is a bad combo, but if you hit a smaller softer object you’ll probably be fine.

    No, I went out with a replacement bus so our driver could carry on with her route.

    I have a cycling cap in the driver side pocket cos they are perfect for cutting out the centre shine point

    the front of the car that hit the bus will be a right old mess, they always come off worse

    What chances have cyclists got if the motorons can’t see a bus?

    OH says that’s a Euro 2 (she works in ADL’s technical dept).. πŸ˜‰

    Ah, a friend of ours has just taken delivery of 16 BorisMasters and a fully electric bus.
    Sounds like a painful day, hope no passengers injured?

    Ah you can’t just blame the taxi drivers. We had a Wright’s Renown written off when a Golf TDI rear ended it at a reasonable speed, hard enough to break the engine mounts and drive the engine into the bellhousing.

    It was a driving instructor on her way home for dinner. Bus was dropping kids off from school. Could have been a disaster. Still have the VW badge on my toolbox…

    Fogged up or dirty windscreen. That grey film that accumulates on the insides of the glass is plasticiser film that migrates out of the vinyls, the last problem the motor industry hasn’t resolved. If you don’t remove it regularly with a dry towel it builds up and attracts moisture.

    MTQG – You don’t slow down up Northwood lane when the sun is in yer face πŸ˜‰

    Slower than some.
    I stopped for an oncoming car a few weeks ago, the car behind me didn’t.
    A Land Rover rear cross member, complete with bumperettes and NATO hitch can do quite a bit of damage to a small car. πŸ˜€
