THIS is a warning to fellow bus passengers.

On December 5, I boarded a local bus. Before I had time to sit down, the driver drove off, the bus jerked and I fell heavily to the floor. I sustained several injuries, some of which I am still suffering severe pain from and lack of sleep because of this.

I was in the understanding that company policy was for the driver to wait until passengers were properly seated before driving off.

I have written three letters to Stagecoach head office with no direct reply.

I am sure that there will be more accidents if this matter is not rectified.

Some, but not all, drivers are keeping to company policy.
