    What route taxi in that picture? The bus on it side of the road. The bhs lick down the shelter trying to avoid the van. I know minibus and zr got their stigma but geeze. On the news it was reported the swift hit the white van and from the pic it stands to reason the driver saw what was happening and tried to get away. Lord sometimes our hatred of things just cloud our common sense.

    @ Sharon. I meant minibus. Happen to know that one. One of the bad behave ones that I don’t catch. Yes I pass the accident this afternoon. If it was up to me a lot of them would be off the road forever; no apologies.

    @ James Almighty. I would never be asked to do jury duty. Why? That for me to know.

    Every time some cowboy forgets the “due care and consideration” rule . . . the price of motor vehicle insurance goes up for all of us! B84 is a well known offender. Ten to one odds he was somehow responsible.
