    Yeh and the fact they are open-roofed...a few times i have nearly been hit by on-coming branches.....

    Plus even when the roofs of branches always hit the windows..there was one case of the same bus having the top of it's roof sliced off by a branch!! :O

    I'm amazed..it could've crushed somebody...but maybe i worry to much..i ean i still catch double decker but usually only sit at the bottom at the back near emergency door and back window....i will occasionally sit upstairs if with OH and no baby,just to reassure myself it's safe...LOL

    seriously? you are all blaming the bus, tragic accident yes, but not caused by any mechanical or driver fault on the part of the bus

    the bus collided with 2 cars which had already crashed on a bend so cant really see whay you would never use a double decker again - fairt enough if it was a problem due to the bus being a decker but it wasnt

    I agree - totally scary but just a freak accident. I remember loving going in a double decker bus as a kid - we don't have the open top ones here and only went in the decker ones very occasionally on school trips. I can't deny Ella that excitement and thrill of going on a double decker! It's much more likely your child will be in a car accident than a an accident with a double decker bus!

    hang on a minute can you quote any point where i said i blame the bus driver?
    And yes this was a freak accident but what about tree branches the sliced the roof of the bus a few years back?

    I didn't say i don't ever use the double decker bus i just said is makes me wary.

    Don't quite understand why,but your post seemed attitudey

    hha blaming the bus!! maybe i'll never step on a bus again because of it..i'm sorry but i don't remember mentioning it was the poor old buses fault or the bus drviers :S

    Just said i don't particulay like double deckers...we all have our own opinions and fears so why take the mick or make out im being stupid?

    these things happen i understand that...but maybe i just like to be cautious and try and keep myself and my child as safe as possible?

    I don'tsee why people come on this type of subject and try and start some argument...it's hardly something to start one on...dear god!!

    ok, i never ment to cause an argument and certainly wont be drawn into one
    but to point out your OP said that you didnt like double deckers for that reason, and you would willingly wait half an hour for a single - all i did was say the reason for the accident was not the bus

    as for your above comment
    "I don't see why people come on this type of subject and try and start some argument...it's hardly something to start one on...dear god!!"
    i can assure you i genuinely have never deliberatly tried to start an argument on a thread in my life, replying to threads on forums is all about opinion and i really didnt expect such a hostile reaction for voicing my opinion about a bus

    however as i said above i will not be drawn into an argument either so on that note............................
