A free bus ride means getting a grip.
A VIDEO of two teenagers clinging to a bus as it travels through a busy city centre has been slammed by safety campaigners.
The footage, apparently filmed for a “comedy” Facebook page called Perth Memes, shows one of the boys falling into the path of the car fromwhich it is filmed.
Although the boy managed to narrowly escape injury, RoSPA Scotland branded the actions of the duo as “dangerous and foolish.”
The video has already been “liked” by more than 700 Facebook users.Kathleen Braidwood, road safety officer with RoSPA Scotland, said the boys’ behaviour could have caused a serious accident.
She added: “We would encourage teenagers not to give into peer pressure by copying this behaviour.”
Donald Pover, community safety convener on Perth and Kinross Council, added: “It could very easily have had tragic consequences.” A spokesman for bus operators Stagecoach Perth said the footage was very worrying.
However, Tayside Police said no complaints had been received about the video.
