Footage showing a bus driver from the Transport for London abuse a van driver brings to light the current state of affairs in London.
Shameful footage shows how a bus driver in London exhibits extremely racist behavior while on the road. Coming from anyone in the 21st century, especially a worker hired by the Transport for London, this behavior was completely unacceptable and most upsetting.
The footage shows how a van driver pulled out in front of the bus, at which two drivers got into a shocking road rage that was fortunately caught on camera. The conversation led up to a heated argument which eventually angered the bus driver into shouting, "You're a white b***** bruv"
This label was not taken lightly, and the person shooting the film - a man sitting inside the van - was also extremely perturbed by the events that preceded. At one point, he retorts at the bus driver saying, "You were coming out the bus lane into my lane."
This led to a huge argument ending with the van driver threatening, "call me a white b***** again," which had no effect on the bus driver who did exactly as he was asked. Amidst the chaos, the van driver abuses saying, "f*** off" to which his rival says, "You're lucky you're there, I'd smash your face in."
This incident occurred somewhere in North London when the TFL worker was driving the 476 bus towards Northumberland Park, a route taken by thousands daily.
Claire Mann, director of Bus Operations was reportedly heard saying, "Any form of hate crime is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated. We expect the highest standards of London bus drivers and are urgently investigating this incident with the operator, Go-Ahead."
"Everyone has the right to travel without fear of abuse or intimidation and if anyone witnesses or is victim to hate crime they should report it immediately. We work closely with our police partners to eradicate hate crimes and fully investigate all reported incidents."
The above two tweets are examples of ads created by the team at the TFL who are creating awareness for road safety to warn drivers of the consequences of harsh and violent driving to develop safer and more welcoming streets of London.
The department is looking into the case to find the root cause that sparked the fire and punish severely all the parties involved in the complete abolition of respect for one another. If a similar behavior is witnessed anywhere publicly, the administrations should be notified immediately to help make way for and create a healthier society for all.
