Something rotten in Denmark – Yes. The police interferes in local businesses causing disruption

In justice on August 16, 2018 at 17:05

For many years busses in Denmark has to go through mandatory audit every year, sometime more often depending of their tasks. Standard procedure is that the busdriver takes the bus for a short drive where he employs the brakes so many times that the brakes are warmed up. Then he drives to a privat owned technical inspection center which does the audit. In Denmark the state was forced to give the inspection of vehicles to private operators due to a rule from the European Union.

The problem with this procedure is that the police now stops busses on the street with cold brakes. It means that the police determine that the busses are illegal while many of them have just passed an inspection.

Today I read in the news that the police has checked 45 busses who is used as replacement for comuter trains operating between Copenhagen and the town of Frederikssund. The busses have been operating since May and they should in fact stop working next week when the trains can run again after the tracks were repaired. 20 of the busses were banned from further driving.

It sounds to me like the message is politically. If it was a question about security, they would have checked the busses back in May when they started to drive on the busy roads.

This summer the police have stopped a number of busses at sports events and music events. Every time a high number of busses were banned. In my mind it is a system error and the police is only interested in showing the public how important they are supposed to be.

If you stop the ordinary busses doing public transport on every road for checks, you could put Denmark to a full stop.

It is technically impossible to manage two things:

  1. Making sure that the temperature is manageable. Busses are either too hot or too cold inside depending of the time of the year. In the old days the drivers manage to cope by sipping small amounts of alcohol but now no person make a living of being a bus driver. What Trish Regan never understood is that 50 percent of the reason while Denmark have a smaller percentage of people being unemployed is that people are forced to work. It is called flex-jobs and work-environment testing where people work for their unemployment benefit or to a lower salary compared with their co-worker without earning the right to vacation. Bus drivers are leftovers from other businesses being moved by case workers to work as bus-drivers.
  2. Breaks on busses only work when they are warmed up, just as sport cars like in Formula One perform better when their tires have the right temperature.
  3. I hope that the justice department will intervene and stop the police from doing these public stunts. They are not improving traffic safety by doing these small spotchecks. If they really wanted to check busses they could stop all busses near the central station of Copenhagen and Aarhus and put the public transport to a full stop.
