If the driver is being sufficiently a bastard, pop round the back of  
his bus and lift the engine hatch an inch or pull the fireman's  
switch. This will stop them driving off again until the driver has  
reset it. Obviously only save this for those who *really* deserve it.

Cycle lanes are occasionally actively dangerous, so I tend to ignore  
them unless there is an obvious benefit of using a particular one.  
Cyclists are pretty much entitled to use any road that it is sane to  
cycle on unless a specific exclusion has been posted.
