General Discussion / Re: Age of public transport drivers

You'd be surprised at the stuff I have to carry in that bag - Latest memo's from management. Emergency tickets (Ticket machine fails to work). Camera (to take photo if you have an accident). Spit kit (If someone spits at you so you can gather their DNA).Latest timetable book. My cash tray, phone, bottle of water,winter gloves, hat, spare ticket machine rolls, sunglasses, paper roll to clean mirrors! Then when you are going back to depot with a cash tray full of coins it can weigh very heavy!

There's me thinking it was just your flask and sarnies Scimitar!!!

My question was is 77 too old to drive Joe public around.
Does the thinking slow down for emergency stops, eye sight not good even with glasses etc etc
Or can many carry on with the work of transporting the public.

Have you any drivers in their 70's scimitar?

Does anyone know what they are actually going to do with the building at the side?
It used to be a children's indoor play area but I can't see anything planned for it?

I've seen this on the Tupton facebook page.
It seems to be getting a regular occurrence in the village.

I have three, put there as aligning points for radiotherapy last year. I'd forgotten all about them and caught sight of one in a mirror a couple of weeks back - I thought my O/H had been doodling 'down there' with a blue felt tip....

 :-?      I thought my O/H had been doodling 'down there' with a blue felt tip.... woo err Mr Dave  :))

If the marks are still there how on earth were they done - or what with is probably more the question?

My daughter has about three ( I think ) but they are small ones.
I saw a lady with one going down her back from her neck the other day.
It actually looked quite pretty as linked flowers.

The driver of the bus which crashed in Coventry was 77 years.

The last i heard was that the reason for this accident was still unknown.

However is too old for any one to be driving buses, trains, aircraft or even taxis which carry passengers from the public

I shall be somewhere watching on Saturday and on Sunday though not at Robin Hood Airport. Huge crowds there may jeopardise any future flight and there have been plenty of warnings against going there - I wouldn't want to be one of those responsible for grounding it before it take off for the last time. Saturday's and Sunday's routes are to be published later today and should give plenty of options for viewing.

Would you be able to post us a link to the routes please Dave?

I heard the end of what i think was an interview on peak radio yesterday about this and it certainly seemed very possible that this will happen.

Not too sure if it a UK company who want to do this but I remember on our travels one year booking into a hotel which had multiple restaurants in - think it may have been Canada?

Are the reported plans 'factual though?'
If it is would it bring more tourism to our town - competition for the Casa maybe?

I really like Facebook, but then, I have no problem blocking folks that piss me off. I've got some nice old pics from there and a few of my "friends" are actually friends.

I wondered why I couldn't see your Timeline Pete

Have to agree with you on all those points Dave but I use it to keep in touch with family and also local news as in our village.
I've just seen a post on the Chesterfield online facebook group that there are plans for the Elder Way Co-op.
It will be interesting to see what happens!
