Bus drivers guilty of dropping cigarettes
It is heartening to read that B&NES is endeavouring to address the litter problem in Bath.
However, I hasten to add that while regularly waiting at the No 2 and No 13 bus stop at the bus station I constantly witness bus drivers either dropping cigarette ends where they stand or, even worse, dropping them in the rain water drain at the bus stop.
I recently made eye contact with one such driver in his process of dropping it into the water course and shook my head in disbelief. His blank expression only served to convince me that as far as he was concerned this practice is quite acceptable.
There is an obvious urgent need for an industrial cigarette ash tray to be placed outside the bus station where bus drivers congregate and cannot be beyond the budget of B&NES or First's purse. I'm sure the sight of an ash tray is a far less inducement to taking up smoking than a carpet of cigarette butts where people, young and old, gather for anything up to half an hour periods.
