These little minds just hate any change. It's still a work in progress and it's not going to please all of the people all of the time. They feel entitled for time to freeze and nothing to improve. Luckily they will eventually die off.

YOU STUPID IDIOTS CHANNEL TEN/WIN NEWS

CDC Victoria is NOT part of Keolis Downer Hunter so why bloomin' show a picture of a CDC Victoria bus.

• To those motoristS, a speed limit of 60 & 50 doesn't mean to go at about half those speeds - except for a very valid reason.

• Again, you SEVERAL drivers, repeat after me, me & me! "A green light/arrow means what if safe to do?

The fact Victoria is now home to an "epidemic" of flesh-eating ulcers.

For CRYING OUT LOUD Swansea MP, Yasmin Catley, how many more times do you need telling that you DON'T change at Mount Hutton & Charlestown from Swansea to Newcastle?

Roadworks. Engineering the same bumps into the same road in the same spot in the new surface is a testament to modern technology.

I guess its what happens when you asphalt right over the top of a degraded bit of road... At least it seems that's what they do sometimes.

The fact that some roads aren't right from the start is another thing. Take Forest Hwy. in W.A. South of Pinjarra Rd., the asphalt changes to the coarse, loud, rough stuff. What I suppose is the "pitch" of the road becomes steeper and rutting in the road becomes very obvious. Drive in the left lane, and the car leans significantly to the left. Change over to the right, and halfway through the manoeuvre, you're level. Once you're in the right lane, you're lopsided again.

Of all the highways I've travelled on (and driven on) here in W.A., the Forest Hwy would have to be the poorest to drive on. And its only 8.5yrs old.

Dedicated train buses (ie: 110) claiming they don't connect with trains (PS: What happened to the "110" bus marshalls that use to be there?)
• Route 273 bus drivers that leave just as the train is pulling into the station.
• Again, you motorist, if you went on the green arrow if safe, the bus driver wouldn't have had to wait for a second round of the lights.

* The fact if I'm not carrying my DSLR camera with me something amazing always goes down Happened this week where after leaving Maitland I see PSC's Newly transferred EX Brisbane City Council Scania L94UB Volgren do a run to Maitland station on an emergency train replacement shuttle. Not only that, they also had FRIGGIN AUSTRALS out that i'd kill to get a photo of too and the recently delivered Marco Polo Audieces. The only bonus out of this is that I got my shopping done quick smart then caught the 180 back to Maitland just in time to get on board one of PSC's Volvo Endura's that is an ex Volvo Stock bus that's sign written about something to do with "Volvo Safety". One of my first Endura's I've ridden on and It left me happy. Never been on a CDC one since their exclusive to school routes and am yet to see one on RR. Later on while heading to an appointment in Thornton, I see Newcastle Transport buses also operating Rail replacement in Thornton way outta their zone. Would've made for a few cool photos had I had my DSLR on me. Fingers crossed the next time it happens I have my camera on me.

* Rare buses or rarely seen buses come out when I'm not around. It took forever for me to get a few shots of m/o 3406 from Newcastle Transport and same goes for m/o 5515. Then Newcastle Transport operates their B10B Custom Coaches 238 buses on service routes when I'm not around. I only have 1 photo of a B10B but would like to catch all (3?) operating in service and the only chance I have of seeing them in service again is to get lucky they are operating service routes when I'm in Newcastle again or see if it's operated on a school route.

And again, because several motorists over a few days parked in the bus zone, the bus driverS couldn't stop in the bus zone, and had to stop in the middle of the street, and the other day, due to this, the bus driver had to stop forward of the bus stop. If he stopped any further away, the Opal machine would not have been able to tap off.

Oh well, at least I took photos of it.

Perfectly good houses being knocked down, to be replaced by ugly king size mansions. We have one that was done last year, another ugly mansion just being completed and another house tore down this weekend. They don't fit into the streetscape and stand out like sore thumbs.

One of the mansions is now occupied by four families.

You are correct.

Our neighbourhood is not quite the same anymore, many residents have moved away, getting absolutely massive prices at auction, even on houses that are dumps.

Telstra's silly ad with a family doing cartwheels and backflips like it's routine. Indulgent tripe. Guess who pays for them.

Just because you have a disabled sticker on your car gives YOU ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO STOP IN THE BUS BAY at Kotara, you b. If I didn't say anything, she (& he for the car in front) would've held the two buses up.

Two motorists parked their car in the bus bay at Kotara. Their should be a "NO ENTRY, BUSES ONLY" not that will stop them.

That biopic on Olivia Newton John last night. It was awful, only watched a few minutes before switching it off in disgust. I find it tacky doing a biopic on someone who is still alive.

Did not do well in the ratings apparently.

Wasn't there another one done with a different actress only recently?
It looks like it was all made mainly as a homage to Delta Goodrem!

All too common in the Adelaide CBD. At night, it's the headlights that are annoying whilst I'm looking out for a bus I'm waiting for. They often sit there idling from anything between 3 and10 minutes.

I just haven't been able to identify that sign that says 'Bus zone - Free 24/7 parking for cars and vans only!'. But apparently motorists seem to have no trouble with at least envisaging it!
