People should take more responsibility for the mechanical condition of their car, as well as thinking further ahead than the car in front of them, to help prevent crashes in the first place. I tend to be very cautious and somewhat untrusting of most other cars on the road, my philosophy is to expect the worst of everyone and you'll rarely go wrong.

It's called defensive driving! Thirty months behind the wheel of these things helped hone my defensive driving skills no end.

Me too! I was still catching a Trent Leyland National home from college as late as 1996.... orange and brown tartan seats, pre-select gearbox and funny smells all as standard.

West Riding Buses used them for absolutely ages, then Arriva came in and replaced them largely with Alexander ALX300s, which didn't have the noise or smell and weren't half as fun. I know buses don't tend to be fun, but hey, they had their charm sometimes.Yorkshire Traction still ran them for a while after though, so getting on a National was a rare but welcome treat, especially since the Tracky ones had an air of "knackeredness" about them.
