On the subject of buses using their hazard lights all the time and confusing the fuck out of everyone on if they're pulling out or not, it would be super useful if their orange lights would just be able to blink on and off at a different frequency/tempo when being used in hazard-light mode to when they're being used as indicators.
Would make things way simpler, especially when a load of buses are all sitting at a stand together and are backed up, meaning you can only ever see their right-hand orange light anyway and so can't tell if they're indicating or have hazards on. PROBLEM SOLVED!
Why don't they just use their left indicator to show they're staying left/into the kerb and their right indicator to show they're moving out/away from the kerb? It's what you'd do in a car (unless you're a taxi that's trying to excuse stopping in a stupid place) and avoids the problem with not being able to see both indicators.
I reckon that could get confusing. In my eyes:
Turning left indicator on = am turning left.
Turning left indicator on when parked and there is nowhere to turn left = confusing.
