School Bus pick-up point

Why does the school bus stop outside the pub on double yellow lines directly opposite a junction and the garage every weekday morning? There is a dedicated bus bay just before the pub....why can't it use this?

It causes traffic issues let alone a danger to all road users.

Unfortunately, it transpires the bay you refer to is neither a dedicated bus bay nor even public highway.

Buses are permitted, I gather, to set down and pick up passengers even when the road is double yellow lined.

(I did have to google for those)

But I accept the main road through Charfield is not best suited to the increasing traffic demands. In a personal capacity. ;-)

Hi awp, the bay you mention belongs to Kopperz the hairdressers. It was the police parking bay from when it was a police station, so never a bus stop.
