A bus dropping kids in Karekare is stuck

Karekare Bus The driver of this bus, dropping kids at a camp in Karekare, missed this height warning at the entrance to Karekare off Piha Road.

The bus cannot get underneath the tree and is far too big to back up.

    Ya can’t fix stupid! If the bus drivers are unable to read then it will just keep,happening.

    A simple communication to the bus companies would warn them about the height restriction BEFORE they travelled all the way here and then having to return for a smaller one maybe. I agree though – silly driver.

    That’s puzzling as the tree has not suddenly presented a ‘new’ problem. So normally when doing school bus trips out to Karekare they use Lone Kauri Road. Some bus companies refuse to come to Karekare and a recent West Akld school trip to Karekare was cancelled due to this.
