How do you log complaints, please?
I generally have sympathy for bus drivers. I reckon it's not easy to cope with the other traffic, narrow lanes/roads, pedestrians, cyclists, etc, and that taking all things into account bus drivers are usually pretty decent (or, perhaps more accurately, there are at least as many good ones as bad ones).
IMHO the bendy bus thing is different. From what I see, most bendy drivers can't control their bus very well at all and have to straddle two lanes even when going straight ahead (let alone the distinctly odd way they indicate and move when turning). Compared to drivers of, say, big lorries, they appear to be a lot less skilled and I wonder whether they have a suitable amount of training before being sent off on a bendy bus in London.
...if you press it, they will come.
