To stop this bus, shout "Ding Ding"

25 February 2015

Travelling on a bus can be a miserable affair at the best of times and, as we know, there's too many buses that are in a bit of a state when you get on them.

One bus in Yorkshire had a problem with the buttons that you press, which ring the bell to signal to the bus driver that you want to get off at the next stop. Well, Barnsley folk won't let a little thing like that get in the way of anything. Forget getting maintenance teams out and all that faff - just write a note like this.

Problem solved.

As you can see, the sign says "Bells not working. If you want bus to stop, shout 'Ding Ding'." It is impossible to read that without doing it in a Yorkshire accent.

Of course, this sign is bad news for those who too shy to shout or, indeed, can't read. Either way, we like this system of fixing menial problems. More of it please!
