Hand gestures banned!

Post  Daisy Dart on Wed Jul 27, 2011 3:43 am

Apparently it is now a serious disciplinary offence to give finger signs or wanking signs when driving a bus! I had heard about something along these lines before, but now warnings have gone around about not doing it. Of course friendly waves at colleagues are still permitted.

To be honest I'm surprised it isn't already, or at least only just being enforced. After all, drivers are representing their company and it's hardly the best impression to give.

That being said though, I'm normally quick to revert to a good old hand gesture when someone pisses me off so I'm just as guilty as anyone! Laughing

We are representing the company that we drive for and, lets face it, if we do give visible abusive hand signals, etc, then the fact that we are driving a bloody big bus in our company's livery then the target of the signal knows who/where to complain to.

I was showing a new driver some routes the other day and when he got cut up he opened the window and shouted abuse at the other driver. I had to tell him that that was the easiest way to get a complaint made against him.

I've found the easiest way is to have a quick mutter to myself and then forget about it. After all there's no point in staying riled up about it.

Well it's illegal anyway, the rozzas will pull you for it if they catch you doing it.

Much like this:

One of my colleagues got caught doing a one finger salute by a bus photographer. Thing was though that he wasn't doing it at the photographer. He was actually larking about towards another bus driver. It was clear in the photo that the gesture wasn't aimed at the photographer, but he still got a bollocking for it!!
