A bus was stopped at the bus stop outside Tesco on the northbound carriageway of TBR. As it went to pull away from the bus stop (slowly, as you can imagine a bus pulls away), the lights at the pedestrian crossing turned amber. There is probably 10 metres from the bus stop to the lights - the bus was travelling at approx 5mph and could comfortably have stopped, but continued through the lights. It was pulling away so slowly that by the time it jumped the lights, they were red, and the green man was on display.
Not quite as extreme an example, but shows that all sorts ignore traffic signals and that more enforcement and education is needed at all levels.
