Bus Drivers can be considerate.
There are a lot of posts about bad bus drivers. I thought I would add a post about a considerate bus driver.
On Thursday 22 March I was cycling along London Road A118 from Romford to Chadwell Heath. At the beginning of the length of road I came upon a bus going in my direction, I think an 86, but not sure.
We played give way to each other along the stretch of road. I overtook the bus when it stopped while the driver waited for me. The bus overtook me if there was room before he stopped.
Eventually we came to a bus stop where there was not quite enough room for him to overtake and pull in before stopping but he was just in front of me as he though he had room to overtake. He stopped to allow me to undertake him before he moved into the bus stop.
I don't normally undertake large vehicles, especially those that may be pulling in so I waved him into the busstop.
When he had stopped at the busstop I pulled out to overtake. Guess what a car driven blared his horn at me for pulling out in front of him even though the car was stationary in a traffic queue waiting to overtake the bus.
So thanks to the bus driver and shame on you car driver.
