I didn't see it officer.
In a nut shell the accident was a bloke in a skoda yeti driving into the back of a stationery double decker bus. One of the largest rears of a vehicle that navigates our roads !
Or to put it another way. Man is man's biggest enemy not the road.
@leatash - how wise you are - the answer to eradicating all rtc's, injuries and fatalities on our road's, stop drivers driving on the roads.
Only drivers make it dangerous not the road.
What doesn't make sense? That's it dangerous there irrespective of the road markings? I can see that and have been overtaken by numerous cars who can't wait for the bus to pull out and are annoyed at me for not overtaking. It was never a problem before and I've never seen a bus unable to pull out. You can paint what you like on the road, it changes nothing.
The above makes no sense are there not echelons in the road at that particular place plus if you choose to overtake you do so blind a little patience is required if you are behind a bus and the idea of that road layout is to slow down traffic.
Is this at the bus stop that was originally off road and they put it back on the road? That's been an accident waiting to happen.
