More Traffic

We have posted a couple of pictures of traffic jams in town during the past year. Here are some more.

This was on Friday afternoon, after watching the races. I saw the school bus coming down the hill, and heard some machinery approaching. I had a suspicion it was going to be interesting.

Act 1


Act 2

Act 3
In the end the bus had to reverse up the hill so the truck didn't have to demolish the small wall. The "Serrez à Droite" sign only makes it more fun.

I bet there was some interesting
Francais going on between those
drivers. What a beautiful
school bus...don't know why the
US doesn't have these instead of
the old yellow top heavy ones
which flip over frequently.

Typical bus driver.... diagonal across the road... no different than the UK ones... Leeds drivers [Birst Fuss] were known as MM&S [Manouver, mirror and signal if you hear a crash!]
This guy/gal obviously doesn't know where the back end of the bus is....
