On the Friday 7th August 2015 I boarded a Boris style bus ( No 12 )... I was standing near the back door as the bus was full. As the driver closed the doors my left foot got trapped under the rear back door, as the driver tried to open the door as my foot was trapped the door would not open, so I had to force my foot free causing damage to my foot.... WHY ARE THESE BUSES NOT FITTED WITH A MECHANISM THAT DOES NOT ALLOW THE BUS DOORS TO CLOSE IF OBSTRUCTED?
I have spoken to numerous bus drivers who drives the 12, 148 and 453 which are all Boris style buses…and they all showed concern to the rear doors….I have stated I am not the only one to have had an accident on these buses due to the rear door... I would love to hear from anyone who has a accident on a Boris style bus.
I was very lucky I was wearing Trainers... What If I was wearing sandals, or I was a young child ?
Boris buses should be re-called before someone gets seriously hurt or lamed....WHY ARE THESE BUSES NOT FITTED WITH A MECHANISM THAT DOES NOT ALLOW THE BUS DOORS TO CLOSE IF OBSTRUCTED? Several drivers that I spoken to have stated these buses are dangerous and poorly designed. Why are these buses still on the road?
I need all your help to make our journey safer.
