The Bigastro socialist group complained yesterday about the poor state of the bus shelters and bus stops throughout the town. The glass panels are shattered and the roofs are broken so they no longer serve the purpose of sheltering passengers waiting for a bus.
The question is, “why are they in such a bad state?” The answer is simple, vandalism. The same thing happens to bus shelters in England and probably in other countries as well.
In Liverpool the bus shelters were all like that. The council there replaced the panes with toughened glass and even that got broken. Then they tried plexiglass which got scratched so you could no longer see through it. For some reason or other, bus shelters seem to be a magnet to vandals who presumably never have to use them.
