4 reasons to take the bus.
In the last 16 hours, I have seen 4 road accidents.
1. Last night on the way home just before Commonwealth Avenue Bridge: A Peugeot, into a Laser, into a BMW M3 (ouch)
2. A little later on last night on Southern Cross Drive: A Big black car (yeah, I'm good) and a motorbike horizontal on the road. Ambo, Fireys, lots of Flashing lights. Didn't look good.
3. This morning just behind the bus on Barry Drive: Car pulls out right in front of another. Big sound of metal on metal, and then the sounds of car doors of people checking if they're ok.
4. This morning on Adelaide Avenue: Rear-ender I think. I didn't quite see it as I was travelling the other direction in a BUS.
I think they should start a TV campaign about how you can avoid 100's or 1000's of dollars of damage to your car, by taking the bus. You can also avoid being killed. How many people have ever died inside an Action bus in Canberra?
