In the ACT if a bus have a give way sign on the back of it then you must give way to that bus when the right hand intercator is flashing!
I know that some bus drivers abuse it but you have to remember that as a bus driver you are resposible to get people to there places on time all the time. If 1 car or truck driver fails to giveway to us then that is 30 seconds late then if 2 cars fail to giveway then thats 1 minute.
Today I was pulling out of a bus stop and 30 cars failed to giveway and I was then late but lucky the runs that I do are easy to catch up.
So please giveway to buses when pulling out of a bus stop.
It only takes less than 1 second and it helps us a great deal.
