Has anyone had any run ins with EYMS buses in East Yorkshire (burgundy and cream livery)? I got very nearly taken down yesterday by one in an eye-wateringly close overtake (at speed). I'm after the best place to write to on this if anyone else has unfortunately had to put in a complaint about a particular bus.

Thanks in advance.
 
Shame..East Yorkshire used to be generally better drivers than KHCT (now Stagecoach Hull) wjhen I lived up that way, but that was when East Yorkshire had dropped the MS part and were red and white, and the KHCT/Corporation buses were Blue/White

Only thing I can help with there is to confirm that

Did you get the reg or driver number?

If not, was it a busy route? Give them a call, don't let them ignore you, explain the exact time and location and they can work out what driver it was.

I didn't get the reg and I don't have a camera. I do know enough information to put in a complaint because the route, exact location of the bus and the very sparse timetable all match up to a very great accuracy, much more so than if I was going round a city. It seems overwhelmingly likely that it was the bus I think it was and as you say they can work out who the driver was. The bus seemed to veer towards me though, I have a suspicion - that I have no way of knowing - that it was malicious, but it could have just been total incompetence.

I had several other EYMS buses go past me later in the day and all manner of large built to order homes on lorries, no problem.

A Stagecoach driver was very nice to me today, he stopped and waved me on at a spot where no one EVER stops for you, I've waited 10 mins+ to cross before. (It's a cycle lane going across a road.) The frantic waving was due to the cars coming up at a decent lick behind him. I've never really had a problem with EYMS though.
