Safety warnings on buses

Post by Bobskate on Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:36 pm

I have just come home from town by bus, a journey involving around 20 stops. At each stop I was advised to "Hold on, the bus is about to move". Who on earth could have thought this a good idea?  "Nanny" or  is  it to avoid litigation, or somebody in head office with nothing better to do?
Following the predictable "overwhelming public approval" that will be reported, do we look forward to "Hold on the bus is stopping.......slowing down.....turning left.....turning right" ? The possibilities  are endless.

We have a rough soil/mud footpath near us and Council have put up a sign 'beware uneven surface' sensored1. As you say Bob, where will it all end shrugg

Based on my recent experiences with fellow passengers on public transport, more appropriate warning would be:
 "This bus may contain nuts" !

I've also found that some drivers seem to delight in harsh braking, sending any standing passengers flying along the aisle.  I've learned to ring the bell then remain seated until the bus has come to a standstill, which gets back at the driver as he* then has longer stop dwell times to recover.

* This is not a sexist comment by the way - we have many female bus drivers but I have not yet found any who practice harsh braking. In fact I'd go so far as to say that, in general, lady bus drivers are considerably better than many of their male counterparts.

Take away coffee cups which have printed on them, "Beware, the contents of this cup may be hot!"


This superbly bizarre translation takes some beating.
