Bus Drivers of Melbourne

Dear Bus Drivers Of Melbourne,
Just a quick refresher of the road rules as you seem to have forgotten them. The rules are quite clear…

A driver facing a red light at an intersection with a bicycle storage area (a ‘box’ containing a bicycle symbol) must stop at the first stop line and not proceed into the area marked for bicycles until the light changes.

From VicRoads pages on Bicycles

In case you were wondering, entering a Bike Box at lights carries the same penalty as running the Red Light.
Can you please just stay back a few meters, I am sure it will not make your bus run any later…

Please see Rule 60A of the Road Safety Road Rules 2009 for more information.
thanks,
A cyclist and a bus rider.
