I was about to say something unkind, but thought better of it. Coach and lorry drivers have to go through a lot of gear changes, especially if they are going uphill. They are not driving unloaded Minis. I think it is a matter of courtesy to give them the right of way where that is possible. Get over yourself and try to drive in the shoes of the other.
Edited to add: If you are already on the bridge, maybe you could consider backing up a little. A car can do that a lot easier than a coach
He missed killing my wife and I in a head on collision which he made no effort to avoid by the length of a ruler, if that.
The vehicle on the bridge has right of way, in addition to his incredibly dangerous driving which can only have been deliberate.
When she had calmed down, my wife reported the event to the police, she felt it so serious. Unfortunately the coach was unbranded and both of us were too terrified to read the number plate at the time, so I doubt much will happen.
Bollocks. Someone qualified to drive a bus should especially know better. They should have been driving in a matter such that they were prepared to stop and giveway to any vehicles already on the bridge. Noone should be forced to reverse in such a situation unless they were in the wrong.
Here is an interesting article concerning this topic which points out the law correctly:
My partner has his Passenger and bus licence and apart from the above offending bus driver ignoring the bridge signage @MadEnginerr is correct "They should have been driving in a matter such that they were prepared to stop and giveway to any vehicles already on the bridge."
