smile Oh dear! I'm sure the "Astrid Way" line is in the right!
Picturit: Ha you found my signature grin.... I was kind of pleased with that one...I know I have to stay modest, but that is my joy.
Chris picked us up from the airport and it was heavy traffic. In the Netherlands the buses have the first right of way... after a (bus)stop and the driver of the bus signals, the cars HAVE TO STOP AND GIVE WAY... I was so surprised that this BMW (who think they own the road anyway) was jeopardizing his car HA....
Stay on your lane.
Picturit: I know, but then this is unusual for me, buses in the Netherlands have the right away.... This is in England though.
I'm in a B.M.W. You give way!
Picturit: Indeed... I was rolling my eyes... I replied longer to Elizabeth why this is an unusual sight for me..

Because the BMW was on his side of the road, he had right of way here. That doesn't look like a friendly wave
Picturit: The BMW was angry and stopped and the argument was longer than a minute...
Even it is not the rule to let buses go first you might have the courtesy to let a working man do his job...
Oh, yes. I'm so glad you caught this one. HA! Well done. smile
Picturit: I loved the way the arms were waving and flying and too bad we could not hear the conversation....
The bus is going uphill too...so the BMW might had to wait.. we never know.

Oh dear! Typical BMW driver; I bet he's got no indicators, too. Alas courtesy on English roads seems to be a thing of the past (Scotland is much better, with many single track roads). I was taught to give way to traffic coming up hill and it looks as though the bus heading to "Astrid Way" is coming uphill. I wonder if both car and bus realise that they have the same registration number?
Picturit: I agree with you reply, the bus was going uphill and yes by accident they both have the same number...

Oh, it is very busy on the English roads - you captured a 'funny' scene, I think we have the same rules like in Netherlands.
Ca bouchonne par là  ...
Picturit: Indeed so and the streets are already so narrow.... smile

An exchange of opinion indeed!
Picturit: I loved the scene and I am glad I captured it.
1234567 all good drivers go to heaven. But this bus driver thinks that the car driver might have gone the wrong way, if you want to go to Europe you have to turn back. Brilliant art work Astrid, first class.
Picturit: Thank you so much, Chad... it was fun to see all arms waving and flying and too bad we could not hear....
The place of the signature was too good to not do it there... smile
Ah a BMW.........

Great stuff Astrid and I love your signature smile
Picturit: Ah... yes indeed grin... thank you kindly. I really like this one too (the signature)
No wonder. There are driving on the wrong side of the road.
Picturit: Ha I thought so too... grin... tongue

Tch, can't see the reason or the argument. There is enough space for both to continue on their way. Maybe they are arguing about who has the first right to the 1234567 license plate. It says "First" on the front of the bus, so that argument is also settled.

I see in your replies that you take the side of the bus - that is just because it is going your way, I presume.

If this happened in my country, the bus driver would be at fault, because he should stick to his own lane. But our roads seldom have the 'narrow' problem. In the event that a bus would be forced to head into the oncoming lane, well, a bus is bigger than a car, so the car will yield. Both drivers will show manual traffic signs in the passing.
Picturit: I know what you are saying and I agree with the bus was on the side of the car... however the BMW did push his car even the bus was there first to move ahead... the BMW did take his 'right of way'... not very polite. But then male BMW drivers seldom are.... I do hope you drive a DAF grin... wink
Thank you Louis for your input, always very much appreciated.
Beemer drivers always think they are a cut above everybody else, to use an English expression. Great signature, one of your best.
Picturit: Thank you twice, Brian... it is the same as in Hollandshire...
There's a general understanding in the UK that if you are a BMW driver you are by definition an arrogant b*****d smile
Picturit: Well I can confirm that we have the same understanding..... wink

The road lanes seem very narrow and the minibus seems very wide. The car driver was perhaps a bit intimidated!!
Picturit: We saw it happen and the bus was already going up hill and suddenly the BMW wanted to have that same space... one of those moments of trying to be a gentleman and let the 'working party' go first... wink
People need to get a life! Great capture!!!
Picturit: I think so too and especially on these very narrow roads and car parked all over the place... not a country for me to drive..
Dispute ?
Picturit: Yes indeed... grin.
i see that the first transport has overstepped the line, quite literally, Astrid smile nice shot and i like the strong treatment.
