WHAT ABOUT his Bosses ?
This comment from another blog is relevant :
" For this trial to have had any real impact, Judge Kennedy should have placed Transport Commissioner Peter Hendy, MD Surface Transport Leon Daniel, and Stagecoach MD Mark Threapleton on the dock and interrogated them about bus performance contracts, driver working conditions, and common bus driver practices that may have influenced Mr. Todd's behaviour at the fateful (and fatal) moment. Until the cascade of responsibility falls on those people directly accountable for TfL's Bus Safety Black Hole, the system will always get the wrong men.
Yes someone has to pay back to Society , for DEATHS on London Roads , BUT , the Drivers are DIRECTED TO DRIVE in the way they DO !
THOSE directing are RESPONSIBLE , thus SHOULD ALSO be standing in the DOCK !
Did the Judge say THIS ? Quote from the Blog :
" Judge Kennedy merely treated this incident as a "one-off" traffic 'accident' that could have happened to anyone:
"All those who drive: look in the mirror, tell me if you ever got to the end of the road and wondered what happened in the last 150 yards. Thank god in that 150 yards nothing dreadful happened.
“If anyone tells me that that’s never happened to them I will tell them I don’t believe them.
“A tragedy occurred inexplicable of proper decision. There’s nothing I can do that will reverse the terrible consequences."
Wonder when the JUDGE will decide to retire , so as to make room for a person with an awareness of REALITY ?
In case TFL are so asleep that they have not registered this fact , i have copied an item from Paul Russell of CIRAS !
IT WILL COST YOU NOTHING for the Busses to be a MEMBER of CIRAS !
" I am seeking to engage with TfL on this matter soon and hope that we can progress towards establishing future membership. CIRAS will be exhibiting at Eurobus next month at the NEC, Birmingham, so if you or your colleagues are attending please come by the CIRAS stall, D19.
For those that have difficulties in London with London Busses , here are 2 useful Email Addresses :
LeonDaniels@tfl.gov.uk Personal Experience has shown a certain level of cooperation

" In the end, I just tweeted the parent the emails of Peter Hendy (PeterHendy@Tfl.gov.uk) and Leon Daniels (LeonDaniels@tfl.gov.uk). If I was using my free time on Saturday to run interference for TfL, then why shouldn't its bosses have their day-of-rest disturbed too? The parent informed me that, to his credit, Leon Daniels did email back promptly on Saturday afternoon. I don't know what explanation the parent finally received from TfL, but Leon Daniels quick reaction gives me some hope that TfL management might cease to dismiss the feedback from pedestrians, cyclists, bus passengers, and bus drivers that I'm regularly publishing on my blog.
