Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: Kent Street, Sydney New South Wales 2000, Australia


You can’t see on the video but at the start I’m waiting at a red light in the Bus Lane. A double decker pulls up in the lane to the right because they don’t want to go behind me. If the driver looked ahead they would see another bus parked in the lane ahead which would require changing lane to get around. When the driver gets to the parked bus it veers into my lane and gets too close for comfort at which point I shout to alert the driver of my presence. After this the bus pull into my lane without fully overtaking me. Again if the driver had any foresight and looked up the road they would see the traffic and realise this needless manoeuvre would not gain them any advantage.
