I have had two recent run-ins

I HAVE just finished reading an article published in last week's Mercury about a young pregnant woman who had trouble after a driver of a First bus did not pay attention whilst driving.

I HAVE just finished reading an article published in last week's Mercury about a young pregnant woman who had trouble after a driver of a First bus did not pay attention whilst driving.

I would like my concerns to be made public as I have had two recent run-ins with first buses.

I am 35 weeks pregnant and on crutches and was recently nearly hit by a First driver who decided to drive through a red light at the crossing near Tesco. I assumed it was a one-off so said nothing.

I then had to catch a number 7 bus and was appalled by the attitude of the driver because I had no smaller change than �10 to pay for the two tickets costing �5.80. His driving was also very careless. He was very heavy on the accelerating and far too late on the braking, making me jolt in my seat which is very painful.

I have not complained to First bus on these occasions but I can assure you and them that any further incidents will be referred to First and negligent driving reported to the police.
