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.
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.
A cyclist and a bus rider.
