I didn’t plan to mention this on my blog, but seeing I have heard nothing from the company after I made a formal complaint to them via telephone and email, I decided to make the story public instead.

An aggressive Johnsons Coaches driver, who was driving a coach with the registration number YD02PXP, drove like a MAD racing driver yesterday afternoon (at approx 5.30pm) on A435 in Worcestershire. …read more
