His employer appears to be praising him for putting the cyclists' safety above his own. But obviously not that of any passengers he may have been carrying.Why aren't they blaming the driver for driving to fast, thus forcing such a desperate maneuver to avoid running someone over?
What a strange binary choice: crash or kill cyclists. He could try in such a manner that he can avoid hitting cyclists without destroying his bus.His employer appears to be praising him for putting the cyclists' safety above his own.

If cyclists suddenly entered the guided busway then perhaps not, surely the point of a guided busway is that you can crack along a bit because it is entirely segregated like a railway. Trains certainly can't usually stop in the distance they can see.Every driver knows that other road users can do the damndest things. This is why it is drummed into us to drive at a speed that allows us to stop in the distance we can see to be clear. Unless you're a bus driver.
That's exactly what I did when I had to go round the scene of the accident tonight. Why should I push when there is a smooth piece of concrete to cycle on?It was disappointing in the video to see a cyclist cycling along the bus way track rather than pushing their bike around.
