Scrap Bus Lanes and Stop the Buses Hogging The Road!

Sums Don't Add Up! The problem with allocating half the road for a bus lane is that, in most instances, you are designating fifty percent of the road resource to less than ten percent of the traffic. This means that the other ninety percent of traffic has to be crammed into the fifty percent of the road that is left. This is not practical or even sensible. With the bus lane mentality that the local authorities are currently expressing, it is often the case that the majority of the nation's workforce are forced sit in congestion, while the school children and the elderly are given disproportionate priority on the occasional bus. The situation has gone beyond the joke with commuting motorcyclists even being fined for straying into the sacred bus lane.

People Prefer.... The simple fact is, people prefer to use personal transport and they should have the right to do so. There are no problems with personal transport that cannot be overcome. With sensible logistic and traffic management of today's society, it is perfectly possible for people to be able to use their personal transport and get where they need to be, when they need to be there.

Let's All Get Moving! The best idea is to eradicate all bus lanes and instead put emphasis on getting all the traffic moving as efficiently as possible. In doing so, everyone will be able to get where they need to be as quickly as each other, cars and buses alike. This would actually also be fairer as at the moment the nation's workforce and majority tax and road tax paying members of the public are having their money spent on impeding them and preventing them from efficiently and getting where they need to be expediently.

So Hard To Understand? With sensible logistic management (a concept that seems to be unheard of to many of our local authorities) and the use of the most efficient types of junction management scheme on offer (a concept that also appears to be equally alien), we can dramatically improve the problems that people currently have in getting from A to B. This is what we should be concentrating on and that is what the authorities should be spending our money on! Not the institution of more bus lanes!
