Default Pavement bus-driver kills man.

Fortunately no cyclists were killed or injured this time but had they
been riding on the pavement they would have been put at serious risk.
Nowhere is safe from these killer drivers.

"A 62-year-old man has died after he was hit by a bus as he stood at a
bus stop in the south side of Glasgow.

James Lochrie, from Castlemilk, was standing at the shelter on
Cathcart Road at about 08:00 when he was hit by the bus which left the
road.

Emergency services attended but the man died at the scene. The 44-year-
old driver of the bus was uninjured..."

A driving licence is sometimes a licence to kill.

The bus obviously swerved to avoid a cyclist.

More likely swerved to avoid a motorist.
