Driver Kevin Bridges, who works for Johnsons Coach & Bus Travel in Henley-in-Arden, has been presented with an award from ROSCO for 35 years of safe driving.

Kevin has worked in the bus industry for over 40 years and started driving buses at 21. He has seen traffic change dramatically over the years and believes most drivers do not take time to read road situations properly and drive with less care than is needed.

He added: “No two days are the same as I cover all the Stratford- Upon-Avon routes, which include town journeys with lots of traffic, to countryside routes with tractors and livestock in the road. I am proud of my record for 35 years of continuous road safety and am pleased it is acknowledged by ROSCO and Johnsons.”

John Johnson, Commercial Director, Johnsons, said: “To achieve 35 years without a blameworthy accident or prosecution is a fantastic achievement and a milestone every professional driver should aspire to. We are very proud of Kevin.”
