I’ve just listened to the recording of the woman who THINKS she has priority over wheelchairs on the bus,can she not read the sticker on the windows says PLEASE GIVE UP THIS AREA SHOULD A WHEELCHAIR USER REQUIRES IT.
I can see her point of view but she probably doesn’t know that on the disabled persons bag may be a change of clothes and maybe some pads or catheters to assist the persons toileting needs plus medication .
She really doesn’t have a clue whats shes talking about,yesterday i was collecting for the ms society after two n half hrs of sitting in a drafty railway station i want to get the bus home it was very cold and very windy the first bus that came was full with buggies in the disabled bays,the driver looked back at them shook his head at me and closed the Doors and drove off.
There was an elderly lady at the bus stop too and she had a walker on wheels she also couldn’t get on the bus we had to wait a while for the next bus and hope that the same thing didn’t happen again,lucky we got on the next one.
The debate rumbles on and even if the court rules that w/chairs have priority how is the driver going to police this and how much abuse is he /she going to get trying to follow any ruling i don’t know how this will turn out we can but wait and see.
