Bus drivers know everything

When chatting to a bus driver on Route 40 (always a great source of knowledge, like taxi drivers), I learned that in all the years of him driving that route, the roundabout at Pemell St, Wyoming has never had a major incident.

So why did some public servant decide to restrict the north-bound lane on Henry Parry Dve? It’s been chaotic ever since, as a simple visit will show. Was this the same backward thinking that closed the Woy Woy RTA office?

Be seen to be doing something, even if it’s nothing, in order to justify one’s miserable existence? I’m sure that our public servants, from local all the way to federal, are paid to provide public progress, not impede it.
