I READ the comments made on the crash on the A1079 at Wilberfoss (May 13). As a bus driver I and my colleagues see many problems daily as we travel between Hull and York.

Only today I have seen three drivers on mobile phones, one lorry driver drinking from a mug en-route to York and a local tyre company driver reading from sheets of paper.

I am talking about sheer bad driving, this is nothing to do with the road conditions or the weather.

Please observe any day, then publish what you see. Ask those who know: yes we can all make mistakes.
