Bus company and trader in row over disabled parking

The bus company car parked in the disabled bay

The bus company car parked in the disabled bay

First published in News by , Reporter

A BUSINESSMAN took photographs of a bus company car parked in a disabled bay – only for the bus officer to turn a camera on him.

John Hanson spotted one of the response 4x4s owned by Brighton and Hove Buses parked in the disabled bay in front of Dapper Dogs in Longridge Avenue, Saltdean, where he works.

He took a photo of the vehicle and less than a week later, the same vehicle pulled up in a nearby bus stop.

Mr Hanson pulled out his camera to take another picture of the vehicle, which he believed was incorrectly parked in the bus stop, but he was confronted by one of the men in the 4x4. Following the argument, the man from the car turned his own camera on Dapper Dogs and Mr Hanson. Mr Hanson said the confrontation had left him shaken.

Martin Harris, managing director of Brighton and Hove Buses, said: “Our response vehicles are authorised to travel in and stop in bus stops and bus lanes.

“On this occasion, our supervisors were on legitimate duties in the area where roadworks and a temporary stop are in place.

“Our supervisor did also visit a nearby shop. Seeing his vehicle being photographed by the shop owner, it was reasonable for our supervisor to enquire as to why this was being done.

“It appears that our supervisor’s reasonable and legitimate intentions were misunderstood.

“A photo of the shop front with its phone number was taken so the company could contact the shop owner to follow up our supervisor’s report if so required.”

Mr Hanson said a variety of vehicles frequently park in the disabled bay.

He said: “Every single day we have an official vehicle parked in that disabled bay and it is the only one on the street.

“We have about 50 customers a day and at least 10% of those are disabled and need somewhere to park. While they may not think it is important, we do. Our customers have a great deal of trouble parking.”

Adrian Tullett, head of operations at Brighton and Hove Buses, said: “This matter, once reported to us, has been investigated and dealt with through our internal procedures. Our staff are expected to display professional behaviour at all times.

“We, of course, apologise for any distress caused but would like to assure you that the staff members have been interviewed.”

Actually, the bus stop belongs to the local authority and not the bus company. But you are quite right, there is never going to be a problem with their vehicles stopping there- usually to undertake maintenance such as changing timeltable posters.

Why are BHBC response vehicles authorised to park in disabled bays or travel in bus lanes when not on a bus call out? The response vehicles usually have shift change over drivers in them, they aren't licensed as a taxi, private hire or as a bus so why can they use these lanes at all?

There is plenty of free parking there so why park in the disabled bay? and why park facing the opposite way to oncoming traffic? no wonder bus drivers ignore the rules of the roads if this is their example.

I think that's a "Brighton and Hove" sign on the side of the vehicle, maybe it's considered local authority?

No, shift change drivers use the white transit connect vans.

The black 4x4s are "Response" supervisors waiting to flag down a bus for whatever reason. They also carry ticket inspectors when not on Response duties.

still no excuse for parking in a disabled bay
and no excuse for the MD to try to defend the indefensible either.
Someone should teach him the word sorry, it can be used without meaning and sometimes still works, but a genuine apology for an unforgivable act would be better.

In no way is it acceptable for a bus support vehicle to park in a disabled bay. This also applys to white van men, estate agents, restaurant owners and roid boys in their pimped up range rovers. Unless you have a disabled person in your vehicle, none of you can park there. Im with mr hanson on this. Mr harris... you are an ar5e.

Sadly, in my experience, Brighton and Hove bus company seem to be above the law. It's my impression that somewhere they must employ a very skilled lawyer who's sole purpose is to find legal loop-holes that can be used to their advantage. I've personally been on the receiving end of this practice on two occasions where both times I had a vehicle damaged by a Brighton and Hove bus. Once I was parked in a bay next to a bus stop, the second I was bumped from behind and on both occasions, the company wriggled out of any claim against them with legal loop-hole and/or confusing processes. They are not in my opinion a nice company.

It's not just the public they try and get out of everything with they even do it with their own employees. Deny liability to an.injured employee when he was defending himself even though they sent that employee without back up to a potential abusive incident involving a drunk and school children.

I was a Traffic Warden once upon a time. I saw a car parked in a bus stop, and went as quick as I could to get a ticket on there (but they can be sent in the post now). I got abuse from the motorist, which could be expected, but I also got some mild abuse from an elderly gent with a walking stick, who would been unable to board a bus, because it would have had to double park while the car was parked illegally.

A woman once got run over by a car that had just been parked illegally in a bus stop, while she was alighting from a bus that had been forced to double park for passengers to alight.

"Perhaps the trader could suggest that his customers come into the city on the very frequent and accessible bus service."

As it happens my mum sometimes takes an elderly friend shopping at this parade of shops, she enjoys seeing her local shops and it is the only outing she gets. My mum has to park this close to the shops because the lady cannot walk any distance on the steep hill even with assistance. She is terrified of using the buses because she can barely stand up in them as they lurch around.

It's a bit much blaming the disabled people for using the space that was put there for their use, rather than the illegally parked able-bodied people!
