Poor driving skills is a driver issue, not a vehicle design one , by
and large.

But some vehicles (especially long ones) cause more suffering when they
are from time to time in the hands of inevitably lesser skilled drivers.

In this particular case it was two cases of bad driving, one of which
was exacerbated by length, in combination. *The second case could have
been anything of course.

One thing worse than bendys parked on crossings is the car and van
drivers who stop on a box junction and then, when the lights change,
escape by driving through a crossing on green man.

How do bendy-buses deal with box junctions? I could easily imagine that
the road on the far side *never* clears enough to get a whole bendy-bus
across and off the hatching. Or does every box junction they navigate
have a bus lane on the far side too?

I think a lot of them are rescued by bus lanes, certainly on the
routes where I most often see them at busy times.
