Having driven literally hundreds of buses, I have to say that they are quite unusual in their chassis layout. With the
steering wheels literally feet behind the driver and forming a large (approx 8ft) front overhang, the idea behind the
latter being so you can pull in tight to the kerb with less room being needed to do so. Because of this overhang you
need to steer 'late', it's also customary to poke your front end out for a look before you commit and start to steer. Driver
was just poking his head out of the turning for a good look.

looks like one of the Denis range of busses .. they are full of blind spots .. creapin out to get a good look in tight movin and parked traffic is the usual way of things ... aggressive ridin/drivin seems to be the norm down south..
movin off with the go-pro hero probably not the best of ideas but neither was liftin the back flapp .. .. bet go-pro wasn`t doin 30mph either.....
tbh six of one half a dozen of the other ..

Normal bus driver behavior, trying to force their way out, stopping half a centimeter from you. GoPro hero should have deleted that clip Confused

Stuff like this can happen several times a mile in day time city commute.

I reckon he just rides around after dark looking for opportunities to "be offended" for his youtube channel.

TL:DW (well, skimmed bits of it) - bit of a non-event, he beeped & flashed, the bus stopped. What more did he want? Go around it and get on with life.
