Busway Hall Of Shame

Car driver stuck on busway says 'sun was in my eyes'

Quote from: Cambridge News Published: 06/12/2011 09:37 - Updated: 06/12/2011 12:09
A motorist who drove his car along the guided busway and crashed into a gravel pit blamed bright sunshine for the blunder.
The driver got on to the busway at Cambridge railway station and was heading towards Trumpington Park and Ride when he was halted by one of the ‘traps’ built into the concrete track...

Full story and photos

(No one was injured.)

Let's just hope the same sunshine that caused him to miss all the warning signs on the busway entrance doesn't ever cause him to ignore one way signs/no entry signs/any other road traffic sign and cause him to kill someone in the future.

Or did he just think he could get away with ignoring the buses only signs...

I know what I think!

I did say on Twitter today that would be part of a Busway Hall Of Shame right here on the Forum. Any objections?

How about renaming this thread as 'Busway Hall Of Shame'?

I know there have been other cases of mis-use and I thought they'd been reported on the Forum. However, I coudn't find a thread to which I could add this item.

If anyone else could find other items, perhaps you could link to them. Then Suzy, or another admin could merge them into the thread as 'Busway Hall Of Shame'.

Edits: kept thinkin' new thoughts...
