A travel bus has been parked at the intersection of Hubbard street to Kittyhawk avenue for a while now. I am reporting this as an issue because I am afraid that this may cause a car accident at some point. This bus is obstructing the sight for drivers who are waiting to turn from Hubbard Street to Kittyhawk Avenue or vice versa. It is very dangerous that the drivers have to take a guess that no vehicle is coming towards this intersection while they turn. There were two incidents with myself, where the driver of the car that turned from Hubbard Street to Kittyhawk avenue did not see me coming from Kittyhawk Avenue because of the bus and our cars almost crashed. I am worried that we will not be lucky every time like it was those two days. Somebody took the bus away once in the last three months, but I did not see the driver to talk to as they must have taken the bus very early in the morning and that is the only time I have seen the bus away from that parking. I am hoping that council will help to get the bus removed from this location and get it parked somewhere appropriate that it would not cause any danger to the people (or their vehicles) who drives around here daily. The registeration number for the bus is LTJ306
