  1. Not to be overly critical here, but the message on the first one posted today is confusing. Why have a quote about how BAD the driving is for the construction industry when compare to London busses, and then acuse London busses of killing people? It doesn’t connect or make any sense.

    1. Out of context the quote is a little confusing, I agree. It was made by Sir Peter when he was talking about the difference between bus schedules and those of HGVs, comparing the apparent flexibility of buses to the rigid approach encountered in the construction industry. The point made by the poster is that his words are pretty meaningless as the statistics for buses are just as damning as those for HGVs.
