I don't have a link to the story, but on the Bristol news last night they reported that a boy had been hit by a car on a country road. They showed the place where he had been waiting and this was everyday as well. The road was long and straight with fast traffic and NO pavement, a tiny strip of grass and a great big DEEP water filled ditch. The boy and the driver did not stand a chance (the car skidded on ice). But how come they could not have found a safer place to wait for a bus. There must have been loads of near misses in the past. It's just so sad and it could have been preventable if only he had space to actually get away from the roadside
Yes, it was that lad. You would think Ofsted or whoever runs the bus service would do a Health and Safety check on where children have to wait in the countryside. Even the bus driver must have felt it was a dangerous place to wait?
