Trial scheme to open up Sheffield bus lanes – Green Scene – The Star.
While on the face of it this would appear to be a good idea, why is a trial required, if as they say it is already in force in some other cities.
Are they saying that Sheffield car drivers will be unable to abide by the rules, if so, I think car drivers should be telling the council to think again about a trial. You either allow it to occur in bus lanes or not. If you do not, how will car drivers with passengers know if they can go in the bus lane or not. You may say indicate on a sign, if you do, how many accidents will occur by drivers taking the eyes from the road to read even more wordings on signs.
Some may say it will not work, as some car drivers do not respect the bus lane rules in force at present. I am sure this in only a minority of drivers and why should the majority suffer for the minority. We do I believe in a democratic country.
