Tranzwatching in Marlborough, Te Wai Pounamu, New Zealand
A Blenheim bus driver refused to load a group of unruly high school students traveling from Renwick to Marlborough Boys College, after their pushing and jostling almost put a boy under the wheels of the bus. The Principal of the College has backed the driver.
Comment. Fair enough - there are times when it is ludicrous to expect a bus driver focusing on the road to be responsible for controlling 20-50 hyped up teenagers! In situations like this an assembly line painted on the footpath well back from the bus stopping area is needed - it is very freaky when kids (or crowds after big events) push towards a bus before it has stopped moving.
