The ACTION approach to red lights?

By johnboy - 31 March 2013 34

We’re going to have a lot of fun with dashboard cams in the years to come.

Richard sent in this noteworthy effort by one of ACTION’s beloved bus drivers.

A large number of Canberrans think stopping at red lights are optional these days, I don’t see why buses would be different.

A lot of the drivers using the bus lane on Flemington Road seem to think that having the lane gives them a licence to speed.

When the ACT gov’t makes such cretinous decisions as to where they put lights, then I regard them as non existant. Prime example; Junction of Baldwin Drive and Maribyrnong Avenue, Kaleen.

It’s alright. ACTION drivers are professional drivers – they know what they’re doing.

I was nearly skittled by one on the pedestrian crossing at Hibberson street.

Ah my favourite stretch of road Wentworth Ave/Eyre St.They’ll be doing major roadworks there soon and who knows they might even make an attempt to synchronise the lights(which would be a bloody miracle).Not that that in anyway justifies running a blatant red particularly in a heavy vehicle,besides the lights were red at Giles St so why would the fcuktard even bother?

Haven’t all y’all heard? Action bus drivers are saints. They can do what they want when they want. They are beyond reproach. Only the scum criticise action drivers.

yes; but though in truth, odds of being hit by an action bus on a pedestrian crossing in any other city, globally, are vanishingly small…

I’ve got a video from my dashcam of someone who had driven the wrong way down a street and an ACTION bus running a red light – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8NX_gR8AaA
