    Do any of you criticizing the bus driver stop to realize he is probably as clueless as to what happened as you guys are?

      Having no knowledge whatsoever never stops a good CNS poster expressing very firm and judgmental views on an issue. It is just like Rooster, although on Rooster apparently being a “son of the soil” etc gives you knowledge and wisdom about absolutely everything.

      their always clueless as they never check mirrors, stop at Stop signs or red lights.

      They do not care about anyone else on the road but other buses they can flash their lights to

    Seriously, if you saw this happen, why on earth wouldn’t you stop and try and assist?

      Congrats! You’ve just won first prize in a “spot the ball”, sorry “spot the bike” contest. You can also go and collect your prize for being an expert witness, sorry meant expert wanker, at the nearest RCIPS station.

      Really… does it?

      So the bike hit the front of the van (apparently without locking brakes since there are no tyre marks on that part of the road) and then bounced back several yards while the van came to an instant stop?

      Or maybe the picture doesn’t show the point of impact at all?????????????????

        There is a skid mark from the bike on the road too you dipshit. The bike braked moments before impact.

    You mean that the witness or CCTV could show the police that a white bus was traveling in the area of the accident at the time, and that’s all . Maybe by publishing the name of suv driver or a photo could help put this investigation to a complete. Or is this the new style of hit and run .

      There was an eye witness directly behind the motorcycle as well as the driver of the SUV and the passenger. What difference does it make who the driver of the SUV was? does that change the outcome? its not like he left the scene nor did the passenger nor did the eye witness that was behind the motorbike.

      There was a white bus or similar that the motorbike appeared to be over taking or avoiding so the police are asking for that person or any passengers in the vehicle to come forward, in case they would have some further statements that could be helpful.

      Everyone needs to stop assuming and let the RCIP do their job. Comments like these are not helping the situation.

    There was an eye witness driving behind the motorcycle. What more does the police need.
