Crash, 30 October:
A306 Roehampton Lane, Roehampton » Road blocked and queueing traffic due to accident, a single vehicle and bus stop involved
Was the bus stop wearing a helmet and high-visibility clothing? Apparently not. But it is just asking for trouble loitering at the side of the road like that, more or less invisible to motorists. Many pedestrians also wilfully put themselves at risk by hanging around these very dangerous locations, often wearing dark clothing.
Please – if you want to catch a bus, run alongside and jump on while the vehicle is moving. Please do not put yourself and others at risk by ‘queuing’ at ‘a bus stop’.
