I would give this bus stop an award for the most stupidly placed ever. Obviously whoever thought of this at Fife Council was having a laugh and all thoughts of health and safety went out the window. You will find this stop in Dunnikeir Road in Kirkcaldy and is served by our 32,33 and 34 routes.As you can see in the pictures, not only is this stop located right on the junction but infact requires you to stop right on the zig-zag markings for the pedestrian crossing. When you are stopped at this stop you are blocking any view of the crossing for following drivers and pedestrians are unable to see approaching traffic. You would have thought any following drivers would refrain from overtaking the bus here but we all know in the real world its not like this.
I have lost count of the number of near misses witnessed on this crossing with drivers going through red lights. Surely its only a matter of time before time before a pedestrian is hit.
Still its a good job this crossing is right outside the Victoria Hospital.
