Using vehicles that are totally unsuitable for our roads is never going to work really, daily crashes go against trying to run to a timetable. If the correct vehicles had been purchased in the first place maybe things would have been different. When they first entered service the increase in cars being forced to mount the pavement was very noticeable, now we just accept it, even having a small car ideal for Island driving doesn't stop you having to mount the pavement. Now walking is no-where near as enjoyable as it used to be, the pavement being a far more dangerous place. When first reports came out from the previous operator that they were at the end of their service life and needed replacing (due to the huge number of breakdowns), I only hoped that someone had the sense to replace them with something suitable for the Island, but unfortunately now we are told they are fine and have years of use left in them. Surely now there must be more than one person in the States that realises it was a huge mistake to buy and operate such a vehicle?
