whos at fault?
im a bus driver and yesterday i was involved in a RTC, this is what happened i was coming down to a round about wanting to turn right so i indicated with a right signal this island is tight so i placed the bus in the right hand lane and the middle lane, i commited myself to go round the round about, all mirrors were clear on turning right ( im on the round about now) this car tried to over take me on the right and go all the way around the round about resulting in thE N/S/F of the car hitting the O/S/R of the bus below the fire exit, the women called her husband who was a taxi driver and i dont mean this in a rasict way he started talking to these chaps in his language and said to me these chaps will be my witness, so i think there going to come up with some bull crap
now the high way codes states:221
Large vehicles. These may need extra road space to turn or to deal with a hazard that you are not able to see. If you are following a large vehicle, such as a bus or articulated lorry, be aware that the driver may not be able to see you in the mirrors. Be prepared to stop and wait if it needs room or time to turn.
Large vehicles can block your view. Your ability to see and to plan ahead will be improved if you pull back to increase your separation distance. Be patient, as larger vehicles are subject to lower speed limits than cars and motorcycles. Many large vehicles may be fitted with speed limiting devices which will restrict speed to 56 mph (90 km/h) even on a motorway.
Buses, coaches and trams. Give priority to these vehicles when you can do so safely, especially when they signal to pull away from stops. Look out for people getting off a bus or tram and crossing the road.
